Today, as part of revisiting the four operations we are focussing on the fluency of short multiplication. It is key to remember to start the calculation from the right hand side, so the place value in the ones column. Don't forget exchanges are to be recorded under the line and the cheeky number to then be included in the calculation.

The worksheet has several levels of challenge to choose from. Use a multiplication square to help you if you need. The extension involves calculating the missing digit.

At the end of the worksheet is a set of model answers which you will be able to self mark against. Don't forget the short dotty date of 31.03.20 and use LO of short multiplication, making clear which challenge level you are working on.
