### Description

These **multiplication Number Talk dot cards** make great whole class or math center activities when your class needs **multiplication practice** for all of the times tables from 1 through 12. During multiplication Number Talks, display these dot cards to help children picture multiplication equations and strategies as part of their multiplication practice. These Number Talk dot cards will help your class develop strong mathematical reasoning around multiplication, while laying the foundations for a deep understanding of division.

These dot cards allow children to picture multiplication, multiplication strategies, and the multiplication process, so they aren't left behind when their classmates explain their multiplication strategies.

These dot cards now come in **BOTH print and digital versions**!

You can print and use these cards for your whole class Number Talks. The printable dot cards can also be used as a partner or small group activity in your Math Centers or Math Stations, after children have experience using the dot cards with you during whole class Number Talks. A r**ecording sheet** is included, so children can record their group Number Talk work.

The digital versions of each dot card can be displayed on your SMART board (or other digital display device) and also used to support children's understanding visually during your Number Talks

Using the 3 times table as an example, the sets are as follows:

Set 1: ‘3 groups of x’

Set 2: ‘x groups of 3’

Set 3: Arrays showing ‘x rows of 3’

Set 4: Arrays showing ‘3 rows of x’

Set 5: Arrays showing both ‘x rows of 3’ (equation at the top of the card) AND ‘3 rows of x’ (equation along the side of the card). When you use the card with both equations, you can turn the card to the side to easily demonstrate the equivalence between the two equations. They look different, but the amounts are the same).

My blog post here gives more detail about how and why I use these dot cards in my class. These visuals help children who are still working at the concrete and representational stages of mathematical reasoning (which is most of our kids).

You can laminate these dot cards, put them on scrapbooking rings, and then mark them with a whiteboard pen during Number Talks, to easily illustrate your students' mathematical thinking as they explain their reasoning to the rest of the class.

These dot cards increase the power of Number Talks to develop strong number and operation sense, as well as mathematical reasoning skills in your class. And buying all of them bundled together is great value!
