Learning time
Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.
Did you know that you can find multiples by using skip counting? If you skip count by twos, you're really just counting by twos – 2, 4, 6, 8, 10. So you just found the multiples of two  2 x 1, 2 x 2, 2 x 3, 2 x 4, 2 x 5. Did you notice that all of the multiples of two are even numbers? If we found all the multiples of three starting with three we would count by 3 – 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 our next one would be 21 we would just add three more. When you're counting by fives, you're finding multiples of 5 – 5, 10, 15, 20, 25. Did you notice that all of these numbers either ended in five or zero? That means that I could pick a number way down the line like 130 and I would know that it’s a multiple of 5 because it ends in a zero. So, remember, whenever you need to find multiples of a number, just try skip counting.
