Understand Multiplication Problems: Matching Equations to Real-World Examples

This Understand Multiplication Problems: Matching Equations to Real-World Examples video also includes:

Strengthen the problem solving skills of young mathematicians by teaching them to identify multiplication word problems with the fourth video of this series. After introducing two guiding questions to ask when solving story problems, the instructor goes on to model how they are used to determine if a given situation involves multiplication. When implementing this as part of whole group instruction, consider pausing the video during the last set of examples and discussing each word problem before viewing the instructor's solutions. A great resource that helps children recognize the connections between the math skills they learn and how they are applied in the real world.
