Homework doing your head in? Read wish-I'd-known tips from other parents on Mumsnet's Education pages.
i was helping dd to add 2 figure numbers and 3 figure numbers in the way i was taught at school ie100+ 10----110----when dh said that the world as we know it has changed and they don't teach it that way any more, they start from the left and use a grid but he had no real ideaanybody know how it works as i don't want to confuse dd
The grid method is multiplication.What year is she in?
year 1i get how they can use one for multiplying eg 10s but couldn't see how it would work for adding...thanks
Grid method multiplication is not introduced to Year 4 though so a bit puzzled to what they were doing!?
dh may well be confused!thanks for taking the time to answer
Do you mean a number line rather than grid? DD is in year 1 and they use a number line to help them add up.
maybe but it would be a long line over a hundred....
