Reflection
When you have filled in all the squares, check out the diagonal line of numbers that runs from the × to the lower right corner of grid. Do you notice any patterns?
Hopefully you noticed that the same numbers occur on each side of the diagonal. Think about why this happens and talk to your mates about it.
