Endless possibilities

This simple but interesting task gives learners the opportunity to think about “twelveness”.  What are all of the ways that the learner understands how twelve can be formed as a product?  Endless scope for discussion and extension.  The activity can obviously be used for other numbers and for the other basic operations.

Some examples of the sort of thing that pupils could come up with?
