Multiplication
• Objective To explore multiplication using
doubling and halving skills
• Materials Required Paper and pencils
• Steps
• To solve 28 34
• One student draws column A and other student
draws column B. We can call column A half and
column B doubles.
• Each student then writes the factors as shown.
The number in column A is halved and the one in
column B is doubled repeatedly. When you have to
half an odd number, ignore the remainder. Both
students stop when 1 is reached in column A.
Cancel all the even numbers from column A and its
pair in column B.
