The Big Bug Band: A book about Multiplication (Arrays)
James Burnett, Calvin Irons, David Pearson
The Big Bug Band: A book about Multiplication (Arrays) uses a language-rich approach of rhythm, rhyme, and repetition to engage children with maths concepts and support key literacy skills.
Multiplication can be represented using four different models: the area model, the set model, the linear model, and the combination model. The Big Bug Band uses arrays to introduce the area model.
