Ideas for use in class
  • This clip would be good as part of an introduction. It uses the vocabulary 'multiply' rather than 'times' but the clear graphics make it a useful clip with the audio switched off. It makes the learning easy with nice clear graphics which could be emulated in the classroom using cubes.
