We have been learning about multiples of numbers and I have talked to you about ‘lowest common multiples’ of numbers before.

For example: the lowest common multiple of 3 and 4 is 12, because 12 is the first number that appears in both the 3 and 4 times tables. The lowest common multiple of 2 and 8 is 8, because 8 is the first number that appears in both the 2 and 8 times tables. Get the idea?

Have a go at finding the lowest common multiple in these games:

I’ve found this game online to help with learning your times tables. It’s a file that you have to download and so we can’t use it in the ICT suite – but it’s something for you to look at with your parents for your own computers. I have it on mine and it’s a fun game to play!
