Multiplication Learning

Multiplication is introduced as a concept around Grade 2.

Unlike addition and subtracting, multiplication is a concept that does not come naturally to many children. Quite a lot of time may need to be dedicated in developing children's understanding of what multiplcation is and how it works. Time spent doing this is time well spent, so that children become more confident with their understanding of multiplication before they continue their journey into the multiplication table and solving multiplication problems.

The multiplication learning in 2nd Grade underpins future learning of the multiplication table, and the standard multiplication algorithm learnt in future grades.

During 2nd grade, children should be learning the following multiplication skills:

  • understand what multiplication is and how it works;
  • know the multiplication table to 5x5;
  • solve simple multiplication problems.
