Administer an activity that fosters a child's understanding of multiples. Young mathematicians are guided to complete three tasks on a multiplication chart. Once they color the boxes with multiples of two, three, and four, learners recognize and describe the patterns they notice. This is a great way to introduce prime and composite numbers in order to reinforce and recognize patterns. A solution sheet provided in the activity shows how the patterns are displayed by coloring the boxes of each multiples.
Explore patterns in the multiplication table in order to deepen your third graders' understanding of this essential skill. Implement this activity as a whole-class lesson, allowing students to work in pairs or small groups to support discovery of key ideas. An understanding of even/odd numbers as well as a solid grasp of multiplication is essential for success with the concepts addressed. If appropriate for you class, use this as a chance to introduce the commutative and associative properties of multiplication.
Identifying patterns is a crucial skill for all mathematicians, young and old. Explore the multiplication table with your class, using patterns and symmetry to teach about square numbers, prime numbers, and the commutative and identity properties of multiplication. A great resource for strengthening number sense and fluency with multiplication. 
Fifth graders practice a wide range of strategies for solving multiplication and division problems with whole numbers and decimal fractions. They interact with operations on decimals, relevant size and place value of decimals to three places and properties of operations with fractional numbers and integers.
Third graders discover a connection between numbers of things in groups and groups. They solve number line puzzles for multiplications and identify data for 3 riddles in a multiplication context. They use number lines as sources for 3 pieces of grouping data.
Sal shows young mathematicians that when they use the associative law of multiplication they can associate or multiply a series of numbers together in any order, resulting in the same answer. This video would be a nice compliment to the Khan Academy video on the Associative Law of Addition.
Mathematicians practice communicating why the sum of two multiples of a number results in another multiple of that number. Encourage learners to construct a viable argument by applying the distributive property or by drawing a diagram. Ask your class if this works for all factors and multiples. 
You could use this fantastic set of elementary multiplication and division worksheets in so many ways. The set is intended to support learners who require remediation or extra support in making the connection between multiplication and division. It includes 20 worksheets, some of which are in crossword-puzzle form. The entire collection can be put together to create a comprehensive and fun way for struggling learners to practice their basic computation skills.
No one can deny the relationship between addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. However, it's not always easy for learners to see the connection between basic operations. Help your class by providing them with an entire packet that includes skills practice as well as puzzle activities that will help them see how each of the four operations are related. 
The commutative property of multiplication applies not only to whole numbers but to fractions as well. Connor and Makayla explore and discuss the idea that 2/3 x 3 is the same as 3 x 2/3. Your 5th grade class will connect with learning through the visual models in the commentary section that provide possible solutions. The activity is ready to implement and would work well in a class with cooperative groups. To extend the learning, teachers could generate similar questions to have students generate their own visual model.
The learner puts reasoning and estimation to work. The directions are to place a decimal in the answer to make the equation true. Pupils are to look at the two problems, one multiplication and one division, and estimate an answer. No need to use the standard algorithm here. 
Learners are asked to find multiples and common multiples of two numbers. They must take their findings and find a pattern between the numbers and explain their reasoning. Use this resource with The Florist Shop activity in this series to practice finding common multiples. 
An educational article can be as useful a tool as a good lesson. This article focuses on how one can use arrays, repeated addition, and number lines to reinforce a deeper understanding of multiplication. Links to 5 different worksheets are included.
Fourth graders study the multiples of seven. For this multiplication lesson, 4th graders sing a song to the tune of "Skip to My Lou" to memorize the seven times table facts.
In this fractions lesson students use manipulative and drawings to model the multiplication and division of fractions.  The problems are presented such that the students are inspired to create explanations for peers.  Sample questions to guide the models are given along with solutions.
Students examine their own intelligence to find areas of strength after studying the multiple intelligences.  In this diverse learning styles lesson, students analyze how the school environment fosters or fails students of diverse intelligences.  Students create posters to encourage the school to foster two of the intelligences.
In this multiplication activity, students practice single-digit multiplication problems. Students complete 100 multiplication problems. There is an answer sheet included.
In this multiplication worksheet, students practice single-digit multiplication. Students complete 100 multiplication problems. There is an answer sheet included.
For this multiplication worksheet, students practice their one-digit by one-digit multiplication involving zeros. Students complete 100 problems. There is an answer sheet included.
Drill young mathematicians on their multiplication tables with this practice worksheet. Included on this worksheet are 100 multiplication problems with single and double-digit integers from one to twelve. No instruction or explanation is given on his particular worksheet but it is a simple and useful practice resource with an answer sheet included.
