Maths Problem Solving
This week we are learning to do multiplication in parts to solve problems.
In other words learning to use the partitioning strategy. This is when we get
the big number and we split them into parts. When then take a part at a time and
multiply it by the number given to us. We do this for all the parts. By the end we
will at least have 3 eqautions and 3 answers as we had 3 parts. We then add all the answers
together and then that is our overall answer!
