I have found that by teaching children repeated addition you can introduce the concept of multiplication very  easy, quickly and in a fun way. You can also use what is know as arrays.


Arrays are used to get a better understanding of multiplication for year 2. The number of rows in an array represents the number of groups. The columns represent the number of items in each group. The multiplication sentence is the number of rows times the number of columns. Children can skip count to get the answer.

3 rows  x  2 columns = 6 
3 rows ( groups) x 2 columns (items in each group) = 6 total

The challenge for tutors is how to offer the assistance required to build their confidence and enjoyment of maths. Maths is fun!   Children should start learning the basic concept when they are young. Do not leave it until there GCSE exams.However, even if your child is not predicted a pass or they state they hate maths, there is still hope.  They can still get that much-anticipated C (under new guidelines - a 4) and pass their GCSE Maths exams.   What I do…   How to make Maths more Engaging and Fun for Children and Teenagers
