Lattice Method

This week we have been refining the grid method of multiplication and learning the lattice method.  Watch my dashboard to remind yourself if you are unsure, and have ago of a few sums at home to make sure you've understood it.  Try teaching mum or dad, they probably didn't learn this method at school.

I apologise in advance for my first attempt with this technology - I'll be as good as Mr Jones with a bit more practice. Also, can you spot my place value error in the commentary for the 2nd sum.

Brilliant Mr Brooks! I've always wanted to learn how to do this method - thank you! I also thought you did particularly well with the 'new technology' and I'm looking forward to the next installment. I really hope you're all doing well; learning and laughing lots!

Mr Brooks, your talents extend to grandmothers as well as 'old' teachers! Actually, add 'old headteachers' to that list - I learnt something new here (well, Leo and Hayden did actually teach me first but...)

A brilliant first lesson, Mr Brooks! I hope we get to see more of them in the near future.

[P.S. No, you can't have that iPad yet!]

Well done Alex for teaching your Nan, you must have a good understanding to be able to teach someone else. Good to hear from you Mr Herring, hope your course is all going well. Anyone else taught the method to someone?

I taught my mum, she said that it was a bit tricky but she got the hang of it in the end. :-)
