It is in year 3 that the term ‘multiple’ is introduced. Whilst there are some very complex explanations of the term ‘multiple’ it is best thought ofÂ as a number produced by multiplying a starter number by another whole number. The answers to ‘tables’ are all multiples.

These two Year 3 maths worksheets ask whether various numbers are multiples of others and it is interesting to see how children tackle these. With a good knowledge of tables they are quite easy. Without this knowledge of tables it can take an awfully long time. So, make sure those tables have been learned!
