Product Description
Partial products, box multiplication, area models, or distributive property are some of the terms used to describe this simpler way of teaching students to multiply. This activity packet begins with one digit by one digit and includes two digit by two digit, and ends with three digit by two digit. There is an additional strategy included that incorporates partial products leading to the standard algorithm. Students will love how simple it is to multiply when they learn using box multiplication. Students who struggled multiplying larger numbers were thrilled when they saw they could multiply after using this method. It also teaches students the meaning of place-value as they focus on one digit and the power of the number of zeros following that digit. There are enough problems for the teacher to use some as examples when teaching, then to allow students to practice, and finally for students to work independently. Students who are talented and gifted can use the more challenging problems or can move on to the standard algorithm that is introduced. Students also see the connection. Schools using Eureka Math enjoy the connection between the area model and the standard algorithm.
