whole class twice.

I
opened my box of chocolates and there were 3 rows with 4 in each row.
How
many chocolates were there?
Show

Multiplication  Progression Points
Dimension

Level

Progression Point

Number

1.25

 Drawing
of diagrams to show sharing of up to 20 items

1.5

 Counting
by 2s, 5s and 10s from 0 to a given target …

2.0 Standard

... Students skip count by 2s, 4s and 5s from 0 to 100 starting from any
natural number.
Students describe and calculate simple multiplication as repeated
addition, such as 3 × 5 = 5 + 5 + 5; and division as sharing, such as 8
shared between 4.
They use commutative and associative properties of addition and
multiplication in mental computation (for example, 3 + 4 = 4 + 3 and 3 + 4 +
5 can be done as 7 + 5 or 3 + 9).

2.25

 Use
of money as a model for grouping and unpacking lots of 10s
 Use
of written number sentences such as 20 ÷ 4 = 5 to summarise sharing
(partition) and ‘how many?’ (quotition) processes

2.5

 Automatic
recall of number facts from 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables

2.75

 Representation
of multiplication as a rectangular array and as the area of a rectangle
 Use
of fact families to solve division problems, for example 5 × 7 = 35, 35
÷ 7 = 5

3.0 Standard

... Students compute with numbers up to 30 using all four operations.
They provide automatic recall of multiplication facts up to 10 × 10.
They devise and use written methods for: whole number problems of addition
and subtraction involving numbers up to 999; multiplication by single digits
(using recall of multiplication tables) and multiples and powers of ten (for
example, 5 × 100, 5 × 70 ); division by a singledigit divisor (based on
inverse relations in multiplication tables).

3.25

 Appropriate
selection and use of mental and written algorithms to add, subtract,
multiply and divide (by single digits) natural numbers
 Multiplication
of fractions by fractions through use of the rectangle area model (grid)

3.75

 Multiplication
by increasing and decreasing by a factor of two; for example, 24 × 16 =
48 × 8 = 96 × 4 = 192 × 2 = 384 × 1 = 384
 Recognition
that multiplication can either enlarge or reduce the magnitude of a
number (multiplication by fractions or decimals)
 Use
of inverse relationship between multiplication and division to validate
calculations

4.0 Standard

... Students explain and use mental and written algorithms for the
addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of natural numbers
(positive whole numbers).
They add, subtract and multiply fractions and decimals (to two decimal
places) …

4.25

 Use
of index notation to represent repeated multiplication
 Division
of fractions using multiplication by the inverse

4.75

 Addition,
multiplication and division of integers

5.75

 Division
and multiplication of numbers in index form, including application to
scientific notation
