Lesson overview:Using the inverse operation to find missing numbers

  • In this lesson, we will use our knowledge of multiplication and division 'fact families' in order to find the missing number in a range of questions. We will use arrays to represent the relationship between inverse operations, and explore how fact families around multiplication and division help us discover new facts about multiplication and division.
