To explain how the patterns of numbers arise:
Either multiply by (10 – 1) instead of multiplying by 9
or use the table below, first completing the calculations on each line.
On the 100 square grid (download here):
Circle the number 2. Put a line through every multiple of 2 up to 100.
Circle the number 3. Put a line through every multiple of 3 up to 100.
Circle the number 5. Put a line through every multiple of 5 up to […]
