Product Description
This tool brings the mouse method “alive”! It is an awesome way to scaffold and demonstrate the distributive property of multiplication. It begins with arrays and the mouse "moving" to split the arrays into smaller arrays in order to find the product of the original multiplication problem. After splitting the array, the presentation demonstrates by just splitting one factor using the "mouse" ears will work.

It’s a fun way to make the distributive property easier to visualize and have whole class involvement.

This goes along with handouts for the "mouse" method also sold in my store:

MOUSE METHOD HANDOUT

Showing the Powerpoint BEFORE the handout is primary method of scaffolding how the property "works" then finally any multiplication problem for a flawless strategy.

Don't forget to rate and comment on this product in order to gain credit toward your TPT balance which can be used for future purchases.
