This worksheet introduces multiplying integers by decimal numbers by focusing on decimal numbers ending in 0.5.
In section A, pupils will complete ten multiplications beginning with 4 x 0.5 and progressing to 50 x 7.5, thus combining students' knowledge of using time tables to multiply mentally with the inclusion of decimal numbers.
There is variation in questioning in section B as learners will complete four multiplication grids. Here they will progress to using the product to complete the grid, encouraging them to consider decimal division too. For example, 4.5 ÷ 0.5 = 9.
