Using the book Amanda Bean's Amazing Dream: A Mathematical Story, 2nd graders discuss how to solve math problems using multiplication. They are encouraged to solve a series of multiplication problems using model building, drawing, arrays, skip counting or repeated addition. After exploring these algorithms they share their thinking and complete a worksheet related to the book. This is a great problem solving lesson that builds a foundational skill set.
