Lost in array cities


Posted by ivyc | Posted in Art and Craft, Maths | Posted on October 13, 2016

Students in 1/2C and G began exploring multiplication this week by creating array cities!

We learnt that arrays are a good way to visualise and solve a multiplication sum. We also learnt that in arrays, there are the same number of units in each row and that they always create squares or rectangles depending on the multiplication problem.

Eg. 3 x 4 is the same as 3 groups of 4. The array would look like this…




On each of the buildings in our cities, the windows created the array. We then used our window arrays to help identify the multiplication sum and the total number of windows on each building.

I did not know what an array was… until now!
