This week in Robin Hood we’ve been celebrating Chinese New Year.
In maths today, we had a go at the Chinese method for multiplication – the lattice method. Click on the link below to find out some of the history behind this clever method and watch the video to learn how it’s done!
Have a go at the following multiplications and comment your answers – tell me how you found using the lattice method. Was it harder/easier than grid or column method?
