Multiplicative thinking has many facets which include strategies, representations and contexts. This package covers this topic comprehensively, even though many of the components can be used separately when the teacher sees a need for a particular aspect that needs attention. The package consists of the following modules:
- Strategy lessons – covering: Flexible Thinking, Double, Number Splitting, Using 10s Facts, Landmark Numbers, Factors
- Mental routines
- Problematized situations
- Word problems
- Number talk
- Calculator challenges
The material is also set within the context of an inquiry that will enable the teacher to show where the students started from and where they have reached in their exploration of multiplicative thinking.
The download for this product is a .zip compressed folder that contains 6 sub-folders, one for each of the above modules. Within a module you will find lesson plans and support materials.
Each Lesson Plan file is accompanied by Teacher Slides for use during the lesson. There are also Student files that give the problem statements for easy display to students.

The proven Natural Maths STAR model is used as the structure for these problem solving books matched to the Australian Curriculum.
It's easy to focus on creating, naming and extending patterns but deep understanding requires a problem solving approach as presented in this software.
Ideal for small group consolidation or extension. You can use these for differentiation.
Multiplicative thinking has been shown to be a crucial part in the development of numeracy. The word problems help students explore and discuss strategies by completing a 4-frame poster to show different routes to the solution.
Schools have commented that there are proven NAPLAN improvements when they have used the STAR model for problem solving. This poster set is an essential classroom addition.
