My math lessons focus on student engagement and participation. I focus on developing conceptual understanding using manipulatives, specific language and activities. My lesson plans also include differientiated tasks that cater to the varying levels in the classroom.
1) To improve understanding of multiplication concretely and symbolically.
2) To use measurement as a way of exploring multiplication
This lesson is a great visual way to approach multiplication. The Cuisenaire rods can be used to explore ‘fact families’ such as all the numbers that multiply to make 10.
