PRESENTATION  TEACHER’S ACTIVITY  PUPIL’S ACTIVITY  
STEP 1 MENTAL MATHS  The teacher begins the lesson with some mental calculations Calculate 1. 5 x 10 = 2. 2 x 10 = 3. 7 x 10 = 4. 1 x 10 = 5. 4 x 10 = 6. 3 x 10 = 7. 10 x 10 = 8. 0 x 10 = 9. 6 x 10 = 10. 8 x 10 =  Pupils respond and participate  
STEP 2 CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT  The teacher Revises using arrays. • Draws an array on the board with 2 columns and 10 rows. How many circles are there in each row? (2)  How many circles are there altogether? Count: (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18 and 20) Let us write this as an addition number sentence: (2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 20) Let us write this as a multiplication number sentence: (2 x 10 = 20 or 10 x 2 = 20) The inverse of multiplication is division. What would a division number sentence using this array look like? (20 ÷ 2 = 10, 20 ÷ 10 = 2)
CLASS ACTIVITY The multiplication table. Grade 3s can start to drill basic number facts – this is the table with all of the basic multiples – highlighting the multiples of 2. • The focus is on the language, which allows a mental image for grouping. (E.g. one 2 is two, two 2s are four, etc.)
ACTIVITY II Word problems involving repeated sets. A vegetable garden has 4 rows of plants. Each row has 2 plants. How many plants are there in the garden? Let us write it as an addition number sentence: (2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = â¡) We can say there are 4 rows with 2 plants in each row. Draw a picture if necessary. Let us write it as a multiplication number sentence: (4 x 2 = â¡) • The teacher asks learners to make up other stories that lead to multiplication – where repeated sets are involved. E.g. A car can take 5 passengers. How many passengers can 2 cars take? (5 x 2 = 10)
ACTIVITY III Division – grouping. • If I put 62 shoes into pairs, how many pairs of shoes will I have? • Let us write this as a number sentence: 62 ÷ 2 = 31 • Do the same by making stories for putting different numbers of items into pairs: −− 26 (13) −− 8 (19) −− 44 (22) −− 48 (24).  Pupils pay attention and participate  
STEP 3 CLASSWORK  1. Complete these flow diagrams 2. The manager has to order tyres for 35 bicycles. If each bicycle needs two tyres, how many tyres must the manager order?
3. If two learners fit into a car how many cars will take 24 learners?  Pupils attempt their class work  
STEP 4 HOMEWORK  1. In the shop there are 23 pairs of shoes. How many single shoes are there? ______
2. A teacher gives out 2 books to each child in her class. She gives out 68 books. How many children are in her class? ______
3. Calculate: a) 22 ÷ 2 = __ b) 28 ÷ 2 = __ c) 20 ÷ 2 = __ d) 32 ÷ 2 = __  Pupils attempt their class work  
STEP 5 SUMMARY  The teacher summarizes by reminding the pupils how to multiply and divide
She marks their class works, makes corrections where necessary and commends them positively

STEP 1 MENTAL MATHS  The teacher begins the lesson with some mental calculations Calculate 1. 3 x 10 = 2. 9 x 10 = 3. 0 x 10 = 4. 8 x 10 = 5. 4 x 10 = 6. 2 x 10 = 7. 10 x 10 = 8. 5 x 10 = 9. 7 x 10 = 10. 6 x 10 =  Pupils respond and participate  
STEP 2 CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT  The teacher Revises using arrays. • Draws the array on the board. How many circles are there in each row? (3) How many circles are there altogether? Count: (3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30) • Asks learners to write this using an addition number sentence: (3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 30) • Asks learners to write this using a multiplication number sentence: (3 x 10 = 30 or 10 x 3 = 30) • Asks learners to write a division number sentence: (30 ÷ 3 = 10 or 30 ÷ 10 = 3) CLASS ACTIVITY The multiplication table. In this lesson you work with the table with all of the basic multiples – highlighting the multiples of 3. • The focus is on the language, which allows a mental image for grouping. (E.g. one 3 is three, two 3s are six, etc.)
ACTIVITY II The teacher Word problems involving multiplicative comparison. I want to make 4 cakes and for every cake I need 3 cups of flour. How many cups of flour do I need? (4 x 3 = 12) • You can draw this as a rectangular array (three by four). Let us write it as an addition number sentence: (3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12) Let us write it as a multiplication number sentence: (4 x 3 = â¡) • Asks learners to make up other stories that lead to multiplication – where multiplicative comparison involved. E.g. There are 3 times as many blue counters as there are white counters in the box. If there are 7 white counters in the box, how many blue counters are there? (7 x 3 = 10)
ACTIVITY III The teacher Division – sharing. If I have 42 biscuits and I share them between 3 learners, how many biscuits will each learner get? Let us write this as a number sentence: (42 ÷ 3 = 14) • Tells another story about the division number sentence. (Mum shares 42 buttons among 3 children. Each child gets 14 buttons.) • Does the same for 27, 39, 48, 54. If you share each of these numbers of biscuits between three learners, how many biscuits will they get each time? (9, 13, 16, 18)  Pupils pay attention and participate
