Palm Class got to grips with some very interesting vocabulary today.

In small groups, we had to read, interpret, understand and classify a wide range of multiplication and division words. 

We discussed what we thought the words meant and identified other words with a similar meaning.

We spotted that ‘times’ and ‘multiply’ can be used in the same way. How could you use these words in a multiplication number sentence?

We also discussed why ‘repeated addition’ must be part of the multiplication word list too. Can you explain why?

Some of the tricky new vocabulary made us really think… Which new multiplication or division words have you remembered?
