Title: Double Your Flavor
Description:
As students begin memorizing the multiplication math facts, they will need many ways to visualize and practice the multiplication concepts. In this lesson they will begin practice with arrays, skip counting, and moving manipulatives for the 0,1,2,3,and 4 times tables.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (3) 12: Multiply onedigit whole numbers by multiples of 10 in the range 10  90 (e.g., 9 x 80, 5 x 60) using strategies based on place value and properties of operations. [3NBT3]
Subject: Mathematics (2  3), or Technology Education (K  2)

Title: Super Bowl Scores
Description:
In this lesson, one of a multipart unit from Illuminations, students explore the connections between mathematics and football. Students analyze information about football scores represented graphically and then discuss, describe, read, and write about the graphs and the information they contain.
Standard(s): [MA2015] (4) 4: Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1100 is a multiple of a given onedigit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1100 is prime or composite. [4OA4]

[MA2015] (4) 10: Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a onedigit whole number, and multiply two twodigit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models. [4NBT5] Digital Tool Description: A woman narrates the steps of two digit by two digit multiplication. It is a slideshow. This turtle method is an interesting and fun method for kids to learn double digit multiplication.

Title: Communicating about Mathematics Using Games: Playing Fraction Tracks
Description:
Mathematical games can foster mathematical communication as students explain and justify their moves to one another. In addition, games can motivate students and engage them in thinking about and applying concepts and skills. This eexample from Illuminations contains an interactive version of a game that can be used in the grades 35 classroom to support students' learning about fractions. eMath Investigations are selected eexamples from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards of School Mathematics (PSSM). The eexamples are part of the electronic version of the PSSM document. Given their interactive nature and focused discussion tied to the PSSM document, the eexamples are natural companions to the iMath investigations.
