In class we practice our multiplication skills through mad minutes, around the world, and word problems.
To help you practice your multiplication skills at home I would encourage you to play some of these Multiplication Games!
Be sure to get permission from your parents before going online!


By mastering multiplication skills students will be fulfill various elements of The Ontario Math Curriculum. By practicing and mastering multiplication, students will fulfill the following requirements of the Number Sense and Numeration strand:
– count forward by 1’s, 2’s, 5’s, 10’s, and 100’s to 1000 from various starting points, and by 25’s to 1000 starting from multiples of 25, using a variety of tools and strategies (e.g., skip count with and without the aid of a calculator; skip count by 10’s using dimes);
– count backwards by 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s from 100 using multiples of 2, 5, and 10 as starting points, and count backwards by 100’s from 1000 and any number less than 1000, using a variety of tools (e.g., number lines, calculators, coins) and strategies.
– relate multiplication of one-digit numbers and division by one-digit divisors to reallife situations, using a variety of tools and strategies (e.g., place objects in equal groups, use arrays,write repeated addition or subtraction sentences) (Sample problem: Give a real-life example of when you
might need to know that 3 groups of 2 is 3 x 2.);
– multiply to 7 x 7 and divide to 49 ÷ 7, using a variety of mental strategies (e.g., doubles, doubles plus another set, skip counting).
