Design a teaching and learning activity

Design a teaching and learning activity to address an identified scenario based on numeracy learning needs (this may be linked to content area 3). Scenario example: An educator working with learners in the building industry has identified that his learners need to be able to calculate areas. This calculation requires multiplying multi-digit whole numbers and decimal numbers. The diagnostic assessment indicates that a learner is not competent at basic multiplication facts up to 10 x 10, and the main strategy used by the learner for multiplication is repeated addition. Design a teaching plan for this educator incorporating activities (in the context of calculating areas) for building multiplication facts, understanding place value, and increasing multiplication strategies.
