# Year 2 | Making Equal Groups Activity Cards

## Year 2 multiplication activity cards

Aligned with the maths mastery approach, these Year 2 | Making Equal Groups Activity Cards are designed to be used alongside our Year 2 | Making and Representing Equal Groups Lesson Presentation for a complete maths lesson. The maths activity cards requires children to use physical object such as counters and cubes to make equal groups. The cards should be clear enough for children to do independently, once the learning has been modelled in the above presentation. These cards are also brilliant for sticking in children’s books alongside photographs, to demonstrate learning and progression. Great for anti-worksheet schools!

Topic: Multiplication and division

This is lesson focuses on making equal groups by grouping and sharing and representing equal groups in different ways. It builds upon the work on making equal groups from the end of the autumn term.

Small Steps: Make equal groups

NC Links: Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2,5, and 10 times tables. *solve problems involving multiplication and division using materials, array, repeated addition, mental methods and multiplication and division facts including problems in context. *Count in steps of 2, 3, 5, and 10.

TAF Statements:– Recall and use multiplication and division facts for 2, 5, and 10 and use them to solve simple problems. Working At

Greater Depth – Use reasoning about number and relationships to solve more complex problems and explain their thinking.
