Stage 7 multiplication strategies

The Octagon group are currently working within Stage 7. The Numeracy project requires students to use a variety of strategies when tackling addition/subtraction/multiplication and division problems. This video is their demonstration of multiplying two numbers together. The strategies used are using distributive properties (using standard place value/ using tidy numbers) and proportional adjustment (doubling and halving). Have a look and decide which strategy you would choose.


  1. Great work Kauri 3. I thought all 4 strategies were clever, personally I would use either Neisha's or Ryan's strategies.

  2. This is a very cool idea! Good strategies everyone! I wonder what strategies Mr Fletcher would use?
