Product Description
Decomposing Factors- a Multiplication Strategy for 1 digit by 2 digit equations

Decomposing Factors is a multiplication strategy, where students break a factor into smaller factors and multiply in any order, resulting in an a problem that's easier to solve mentally!

This is a seat scoot game, where students will scoot from one desk to another solving a variety of problems using the partial product strategy!

What's included:
-Teacher prep and directions
-Decomposing Factors poster
-26 scoot cards, each with a 1 digit by 2 digit multiplication problem that encourages the decomposing factors strategy
- record sheet template
- alternate ideas for the scoot cards

Alternate uses for cards:
--Instead of a seat scoot, use the cards as a work station.

-- Don’t have time to play the full game? No worries! Divide the deck of cards into three different sets: A-I, J-R, and S-Z.

--Send a seat scoot card home for home practice!

-- Use the cards during your math warm-up routine, discussing ways to use the strategy to solve multiplication problems mentally.

-- Place the cards and record sheets in a folder for early finishers!

I have many more multiplication and division scoot card sets- mix and match them!
