Welcome to Mathtastic! Your SOLUTION to all math problems!
This math product was created to support the Multiplication Unit embedded within the Common Core standards for Third Grade math.
In order to be a Multiplication Master, you have to know how to break a number down! Understanding partial products through the distributive property is very important in common core as students attempt to mentally multiply bigger numbers. Every student should know that the problem 28 x 5 can easily be solved by utilizing the place value knowledge that 28 is actually 20 + 8 and you can multiply both parts of the number by 5 to easily get your product. (i.e. 20 x 5 = 100 and 8 x 5 = 40, so 100 + 40 = 140.)
The first step to mastering this skill is understanding the trick of multiplying with zeros. If a student knows their basic facts, and can easily identify it in a problem, adding zeros to find the product for the problem is simple. In this game, the students will have fun mentally honing this skill. Again, this game is an excellent precursor to using partial products to multiply. This game is perfect for a math station during math workshop, as a review game, or as guided math lesson.
