Multiplication in Hort Park
These are photographs taken at Singapore's Hort Park.
Each flower has 5 petals. How many petals are there in 2 flowers? 4 flowers? 5 flowers? This is a 'rate' situation that can be modelled using multiplication
Another is the 'array' situations. How many pots of plants are there in the photograph. In an array, the number of objects in each row is equal.
