# Array hooray!

Concept:

Description:

Learners match multiplication fact to an array.

**Purpose **

Practice multiplication using arrays. In this exercise, an array is a visual representation of a fact. For example an array could be 2 lines of 4 blocks and this would represent the multiplication fact of 2 × 4. The exercise if for learners to match the facts with the arrays – or images – that represent them.

**Materials**

- Print out this Array Hooray Multiplication sheet
- Pencils

**How to play:**

- Choose a multiplication fact. For example 2×2
- Ask learners to match the fact to the array. In this case they would look for 2 lines of 2 blocks
- Now ask learners to give the result of the fact – how many blocks there are altogether in each array. In this case. 2×2=4. So 4 is the result.
