This Common Core resource covers six different aspects of of 5NBT5 (fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm). To fully understand the standard algorithm, use this resource to help bridge the gap from abstract to concrete. Using the area model (portioning) students create visual connections. Word problems are included. Also exposing students to the FOIL method encourages use of expanded form and prepares them for future use of this process. Also included is a mental math question. Students can also create their own 3 x 2 problem to make the biggest product possible.
