Lesson 1 – Lots


  • At the end of this lesson, students should be able to multiply numbers by grouping them.


Before we start with multiplication, let’s look at lots. When we say lots, we are talking about groups e.g. If we say 2 lots of 2, it means that there are 2 groups of two.

From the example above, we can see that there are 2 boxes and each box contains 2 items. Therefore when we put these items together in one box, we have 4. We can then conclude that 2 lots of 2 is 4.
