Also known as Russian Peasant multiplication – multiply two numbers by halving and doubling. Ideal for lower abilities who want a different multiplication option, this PowerPoint includes three worked examples and five questions to try.
I love this. I teach adults who have always struggled with maths. This will be a fantastic resources for a dyslexic learner who cannot multiply, and struggles to keep the process steps in order, so always reverts back to adding. Thank you!

It seems to be a great idea for some of my weaker maths students. I will give it a go when term starts.
