## Using real life to learn our 6 times table...

Multiplying by 1 and 0 and dividing by 1

Can you explain why multiplying by 1 means you end up where you started?

456 x 1 = 456

Or

Why multiplying by 0 means you have nothing left?

0 x 879 = 0

If you share an amount so that everyone has 1...

9 ÷ 9 = 1

Why is that different to sharing the amount once?

9 ÷ 1 = 9

Multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100

Do you know what happens when you multiply and divide by 10 or 100? Top
