Major Standard Covered
4.NBT.B.5. Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit 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.
Standards that are spiraled in but not taught specifically:
• 4.NBT.A.1. Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division. 1Grade 4 expectations in this domain are limited to whole numbers less than or equal to 1,000,000.
• 4.OA.A.2. Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
After searching high and low for something that met the needs of my class, I decided that it would be easier to make my own unit plan! I found that a lot of resources lumped NBT.4 into one practice page with all of the different types of multiplication problems, but didn't really give my students enough practice with each individual expectation of the standard. I teach in a high need school, so my kids need a lot of scaffolded practice/ modeling, and often struggle with independence.
This resource would be considered enrichment for 3rd grade, on level for 4th grade, and remediation for 5th grade.
Included in this resource you will find:
Folder 1-> Practice and Assessment Files
* 2-digit x 1-digit multiplication, 3-digit x 1- digit, 4-digit x 1-digit, 2- digit by 2-digit
- Guided Notes
- Scaffolded Practice
- Problem Solving
- Post- Assements
ActivInspire FlipChart to present material to your class. :) I will add a PPT for those without the Activ Software as soon as I get a chance!
*Note, in my location Common Core has been a source of debate, so I didn't add the standard number labels to this file just in case CCSS gets dropped. That way you can use this resource no matter what formal standards your state or school system follows. :)
