Learners investigate rectangular arrays. By using multiplication, they will explore the use of rectangular arrays to visualize multiplication. Then work with hands on manipulatives to construct arrays and generate the matching multiplication fact. In the end, they will be able to explain the meanings of each sentence of a word problems and the associated actions to solving.
Going to the pumpkin patch? Start with this multiplication lesson plan using pumpkin arrays and factors between 1 and 10. As you project a hundred chart, learners use their own (handout included) to map out a farmer's field. First, he plants three rows with ten pumpkins in each. Then, he plants ten rows with six pumpkins in each. Learners record the equations in the provided worksheet, and watch for patterns when dealing with 10 as a constant factor. Follow-up activities are provided.
Develop multiplication skills with your class. Youngsters will visualize multiplication as repeated addition. Then they will create a multiplication bug book and discover arrays as a strategy for multiplication problem solving. Modifications are given as well as all of the resources that you will need. There are 37 pages in this well-designed packet. There is something for everyone to use!
This is an amazing 33-page resource for teaching multiplication! Your mathematicians will discover the connection between multiplication and repeated addition. They also will work collaboratively with arrays while studying zoo animals. It is recommended that you allow three class periods to complete all of the activities. Various strategies and manipulatives are suggested to make this a in-depth instructional piece.
These acitivities are designed for two! With a partner, problem solve and calculate the answers to fifteen word problems or mathematical equations. Scaffolding and coaching are included, and as an extension learners are prompted to create their own problems to illustrate with arrays and equations.
Multiplication can become more enjoyable when it is fully understood. Learners use a variety of ways to visualize the concept of multiplication. First, learners use repeated addition to describe the process, then they map out their results on an array. Finally, they use educational software to make multiplication cards. This lesson includes 4 links to some fun math websites.
