# Multiplication and Division (Year 4)

In Year Four Maths KS2, children explore multiplication and division. They learn times tables and also multiply and divide larger numbers. Terms like 'product' and 'remainder' become familiar, and they discover how to find fractions, like halves or quarters.

To find the product of two numbers, simply multiply them. Numbers that divide another number are its factors. Products and factors are important in multiplication and division, used in everyday life, like shopping. For example, if Mum buys three toothbrushes at £4 each, she multiplies £4 by 3 to find the total cost.
