Grid Multiplication
The below QuickQuestion Interface © generates random multiplications to do. The grid method of multiplication is probably the most common method of written multiplication being taught in schools now as it is a very visual method.
To use the QQI select a grid size from the drop down menu depending on the level of the multiplication you want to do.
When you press the new question button, a random question fitting your selection will appear.
Try and calculate the product shown.
Once you have got an answer, press the show grid button to show the working for the grid.
Finally, the show answer button will reveal the rest of the working, and the final answer.
