We were learning to learn our times tables that we already knew to help us solve harder multiplication problems.
This is what Canberra did for the maths questions.
This task is about showing how to solve multiplication problems.
Some students are setting up a school garden.
Do not use a calculator to answer the maths problems below.
a) Hohepa planted 9 rows with 8 tomato plants in each row.
Show how to work out how many tomato plants he planted altogether.
9 x 8 = 72
b) Paul planted 7 rows with 20 carrots in each row.
Show how to work out how many carrots he planted altogether.
7 x 2 = 14 + 0 = 140
c) Iritana planted 5 rows with 14 lettuces in each row.
Show how to work out how many lettuces she planted altogether.
5 x14 =
5 x 10 = 50
d) Doug planted 6 rows with 15 strawberry plants in each row.
Show how to work out how many strawberry plants he planted altogether.
6 x 10 = 60
30 + 60 = 90
