  • Hi the calculation for partitioning is incorrect.  It should be 3 x not 2 x and the answer 2014 not 1976.

    • Hi there GayleFothergill,
      Thank you so much for letting us know about this issue! Our lovely resource creation team have amended the resource and the new version is now available to download.

  • Would it be possible to have a carrying version with the font in a cursive style? So a combination of the two variations that are offered from the original.

  • i have been led to believe that 3 x 5 is repeated addition of 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 not as portrayed on the posters It does how ever give the same answer as 5 x 3 which is 5 + 5 + 5

    • Hi there sukey0306

      Thanks for getting in touch, it's lovely to hear from you!
      Because the teaching of multiplication can differ from school to school, we have created more than one version of this resource. If you have a look in the 'alternative versions' box underneath the resource there is one called 'reverse equation.' which has the equations the way round you mentioned :)

  • Brilliant posters for LKS2 display on working wall- an 'aide memoire'

  • I'm going to laminate specific strategies and have them available to my maths class as reminders. It would be great to have a multiplying by 10/100 resource to match the dividing by 10/100 resource.

    • Hi CBuckley,
      I think we have what you're looking for! Please check out this resource and let me know if it's not quite what you were hoping for :)

    • Hi there,
      sorry I didn't make myself clear enough. I meant you have a strategy poster for dividing by 10/100 but not one for multiplying by 10/100. That would be an awesome addition to this pack. :-)
      Also it would be great to see a poster for partitioning to multiply 2dx1d.

    • Hi CBuckley,
      Thank you for commenting. I have put this request through, if we're able to make it then we'll be in touch to let you know! :)

  • Great to reinforce methods on a class display board. Or as target reminder inside maths book. Thanks.

    , Nov 30th
  • Very clear - great for maths wall or small group work.

  • Is it possible to add multiplying by 10 to this pack - like with the division strategy pack? Many thanks!

    • Hi waffles11,

      Thank you for your resource suggestion on the Twinkl website.

      If we're able to make this for you we'll be in touch shortly to let you know.

      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

  • Thank you for these! Great if anyone is using Singapore maths, as it suggests if there is 3 groups containing 5 then write 3x5. This has really helped them visualise and prompt them to check!

    , Oct 20th
  • Just to point out that it should be 5 x 3 as your representations show 5 three times or 3 lots of 5!
    5 is the group size you start with and the instruction is multiply it by 3.

    • Hi tt3147,

      I hope you have a lovely day : )

    • Hi there,
      There is now a 'reverse equation' alt available with the equations the other way around. I hope you find it useful!

      , Oct 8th
    • Thank you!

      , Oct 8th
  • I love these posters but the actual multiplication number sentence should be the other way round from the items that have been drawn out. 3 jumps of 5, 3 rows of 5 etc...
