*FUN independent or partner activity that gets students moving around the room while completing 1 x 2 and 2 x 2 digit multiplication problems using an area model.
-10 1 x 2 digit multiplication problems and word problems
-10 2 x 2 digit multiplication challenge problems
(cut these out, glue on colored paper, and post around the room)
-Space for students to draw their area models
*CCRS for mathematics and DoDEA/DoDDS aligned
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.
