In maths at the moment we are learning about multiplication and what this means and looks like. We have been using the white boards and blocks to show what the problem is.
We have learnt that the x sign means groups of, lots of, repeated addition and lots of other things. When we found this out we could solve multiplication problems. 6x2 is 6 groups of 2 or could be written as 2+2+2+2+2+2.
