Reasoning and visualising in Maths - Mental Multiplication

As part of our warm up in Maths today we used concrete resources (and pictures)
to visualise and reason about what is meant by 7 x 6 and how we can use this as a starting point to extend our mathematical thinking into decimals, negatives and large numbers.
Just look at the range of representations we made to completely cover our tabletops (and who doesn't like writing on classroom tables👦👧?)!

  1. Fabulous visualisations...I accept writing on tables was for a good mathematical cause but I hope that they're clean now?!
