This bundle is aligned to Common Core Math Standard 4.NBT.5 & 5.NBT.5
Multiplication is a skill that students learn, but often do not understand. Well there is a way to help students make sense of multiplication and therefore hold onto the skill. The first step is to teach students through arrays or area models. Following students should learn partial products followed by the standard algorithm!
This bundle includes two practice worksheets that focus on area models, a packet in which students apply critical thinking skills to solve word problems with area models and an exit ticket!
The worksheets can be used as a whole class, for independent work, partner work, math center or homework!
I hope you enjoy :o)
