Title: You Kan With Khan: Math Made Easy!
Description:

Khan Academy is an excellent free resource for differentiating instruction. Students have different learning styles and learn at different levels. With Khan Academy, students can easily and quickly learn complicated mathematical concepts through practice, videos, and examples. Each student can be assigned a different set of lessons depending on their individual level and learning needs. The teacher can decide which lessons a student will work on according to their needs and learning goals. Khan Academy appeals to varying learning styles, provides quick feedback, and allows the teacher to easily individualize instruction.

Title: Grade 5 Mathematics Module 2, Topic A: Mental Strategies for Multi-Digit Whole Number Multiplication
Description:

Module 2, Topic A begins a sequential study of multiplication that culminates in Topic D. In order to link prior learning from Grade 4 Module 1 and Grade 5 Module 1 and to set the stage for solidifying the standard multiplication algorithm, students begin at the concretepictorial level. They use place value disks to model multi-digit multiplication of place value units, for example, 42 × 10, 42 × 100, 42 × 1,000, leading quickly to problems such as 42 × 30, 42 × 300, and 42 × 3,000 (5.NBT.1, 5.NBT.2). Students then round factors in Lesson 2 and discuss the reasonableness of their products. Throughout Topic A, students evaluate and write simple expressions to record their calculations using the associative property and parentheses to record the relevant order of calculations (5.OA.1).
