Multiplication and Division 2
Outcomes

Recognise and represent multiplication as repeated addition, groups and arrays (ACMNA031)

Model multiplication as repeated addition, eg 3 groups of 4 is the same as 4 + 4 + 4
Examples

Recognise when items have been arranged into groups, eg 'I can see two groups of three pencils'
Examples

Use concrete materials to model multiplication as equal 'groups' and by forming an array of equal 'rows' or equal 'columns'
Examples

Model the commutative property of multiplication, eg '3 groups of 2 is the same as 2 groups of 3'
Examples

Model multiplication as repeated addition, eg 3 groups of 4 is the same as 4 + 4 + 4
 Represent division as grouping into equal sets and solve simple problems using these representations (ACMNA032)
