As we work our way through the four mathematics operations, we stopped to focus on multiplication and we discussed what multiplication is and why you would and wouldn't use formal written methods.
e.g. you wouldn't use a formal column method to calculate 700 x 300 (because we know 7 x 3 and we can move forward from there...).
What did you think of the game 'how close to 100?'
