This product was created to go along with Engage NY Module 1, Topic A, Lesson 1. I've included THREE versions of the game to meet the needs of all students. It provides students with additional practice of understanding how to represent an amount various ways. Below is an explanation of the different ways.
Repeated addition was introduced in 2nd grade. It is one way to express multiplication using repeated addends or adding the same number over and over again. For example, 4 x 7 can be thought of as adding 7 four times. (7 + 7 + 7 + 7 )
Each picture used in the game shows a group of something. For example, you might have 4 flower pots with 7 flowers in each pot.
Expressing the multiplication sentence 4 x 7 using words would be the same as 4 groups of 7.
This is taken directly from Engage NY. Unit form uses numbers and words. For example, the unit form of 4 x 7 would be 4 sevens.
For the problems in this game the first factor represents the number of groups and the second factor represents the number of things in each group. 4 x 7
