Arrays micro-lesson

Do you struggle with balancing your kids’ screen time with their education? Say hello to 1Question, the app that solves this problem with a fun twist! Our app lets your child earn screen time minutes in their favourite apps by watching educational videos and correctly answering quiz questions. And the best part? You get to decide which apps to lock behind learning using 1Question. 

Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

An array is a type of picture that we use to help us visualize and solve multiplication equations. In this type of picture, you will have items that are in rows and columns. So, they will go up and across kind of like in a rectangle. To help us see how this works, we're going to look at the equation 3 x 5. In this equation 3 is the first number. So, this means there's going to be 3 rows so you're going to have 3 items going up. The second number in this equation is 5. This means there's going to be 5 items in each row. So, you're going to have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 going across in each row. If you count all of these items altogether in the whole array, there's 15. That means that the answer to 3 x 5 is 15.
