   View Standards     Standard(s): [MA2019] (3) 1 :
1. Illustrate the product of two whole numbers as equal groups by identifying the number of groups and the number in each group and represent as a written expression.

Subject: Mathematics (3)
Title: Quick Images for Multiplication
Description:

This learning activity allows the students to develop critical number sense that will help with their understanding of multiplication and equal groupings. In this learning activity, students will be shown a dot image for 3 seconds. Students will have to quickly determine the amount of total dots on the screen before they disappear. This activity helps students develop an understanding of quantity. Students will have to quickly look at the image and determine how many groups are in the image and how many dots are in each group. They will then use mental math to calculate the product of the image.

Title: Cookie Monster Bake Sale
Description:

During this learning activity, students will solve a quality task that allows students to find the product of a given problem using equal grouping. Cookie Monster needs help counting the number of cookies he is baking for the school's bake sale. Students will first build the problem using counters then solve the problem and write the multiplication expression that matches what they built.

Title: Lego Toy Assessment Activity
Description:

This learning activity should be used as an assessment activity that allows students to explain their thinking to solve problems involving equal groups for multiplication. Students will solve an equal groups multiplication word problem illustrating their thinking. They will then have to defend their answer on an extension problem.

Title: Learning Multiplication Can Be Fun!
Description:

This website allows the students to practice multiplication problems by having them shoot the balloon with the correct answer. The teacher can also choose exactly what type of multiplication fact to be practiced such as 2s,3s,4s, etc. This website will help reinforce or even teach students multiplication. Also, the repetitive nature of this game lends itself to easy memorization of multiplication facts. It is a game that can be used in a short amount of time as one game only lasts about three minutes.
