Maths Mania
We have taken part in lots of practical maths this week. We have been learning our 4 and 8 times tables and our 3 and 6 times tables. We were amazed to find out that if we add the digits of a number together (e.g. 27 = 2 + 7 = 9) and they add up to 3, 6 or 9 then the number belongs to the 3 times table and 3 will divide into them exactly. We can also double the 3 times table to work out the 6 times table. We then learnt that all numbers in the 4 times table are even. This means they end with 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. We can also double the 4 times table to work out the 8 times table. Maths is amazing!
