## Description

Learners will develop knowledge and understanding of multiplication as repeated addition, initially adding groups to find a total. They will learn that multiplication is commutative (it can be done in any order, e.g. 4 x 3 or 3 x 4) and that the inverse of multiplication is division which requires sharing into equal groups. They will apply their understanding as they practise multiplication and division related to the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
