LF: Multiplying 2-digit numbers by 1-digit using the grid method.


Today we will use a new method to multiply 2-digit numbers - the grid method.  Just like partitioning, it breaks the calculation down into smaller steps.  I have shown you an example below:


23 x 8 = 

20 x 8 =160

3 x 8 = 24

23 x 8= 184

Practise using the grid method by completing the worksheet below.  You do not have to complete the whole worksheet but try to complete as many as you can.  The answers are included on the final page for you to check your work.
