In Year Four Maths KS2 students continue to look at multiplication and division. As well as learning their times tables they will also start to multiply and divide larger numbers. Terms such as 'product' and 'remainder' should be familiar to children in Year Four and they should also be able to find simple fractions, such as halves or quarters, of other numbers.
If you want to find the product of two numbers then multiply them together. The numbers that we can divide a number by are it's factors. Products and factors are just two parts of multiplication and division. Multiplication and division are often used by people in their everyday life, especially when going shopping! Three children have broken their toothbrushes so their Mum is buying three new ones. They cost £4 each, so to find the total she has to multiply £4 by 3. If Mum knows the answer then she knows just how much she is spending.
