Chapter 12 Discovering Systematic Procedures

2 Consolidating the ‘carrying’ process with multiplications of all kinds, at first with those for which pupils know alternative methods; for example:

with the answer to be checked both by dividing the answer by 5 or by an alternative method of multiplication: 5 × 76 =

× 760 = 380

3 Extending this technique to larger numbers:

4 Including in the above some examples of multiplication by multiples of ten (20, 30, 40 . . . ) and of hundred (200, 300, 400. . . ). 5 Multiplying by numbers of two or more figures first setting out each multiplication separately and totaling the separate answers; for example:
