Multiplication and division

Multiplying and dividing positive and negative whole numbers, understanding place value, and rounding numbers.

Basic multiplication

If 3 kids each have two robot possums, how many total robot possums do we have? You liked addition, but now you're ready to go to the next level. Depending on how you view it, multiplication is about repeated addition or scaling a number or seeing what number you get when you have another number multiple times. If that last sentence made little sense, you might enjoy this tutorial.

One-digit division

Every time you split your avocado harvest with your 10 pet robot possums, you've been dividing. You don't farm avocados? You only have 8 robot possums? No worries. I'm sure you've divided as well. Multiplication is awesome, but you're ready for the next step. Division is the art of trying to split things into equal groups. Like subtraction undoes addition, division also undoes multiplication. After this tutorial, you'll have a basic understanding of all of the core operations in arithmetic!

Lattice multiplication

Tired of "standard multiplication". In this tutorial we'll explore a different way. Not only is lattice multiplication interesting, it'll help us appreciate that there are many ways to do things. We'll also try to grasp why it works in the first place. Enjoy!
