PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These worksheets are a great way to introduce multiplication using groups an arrays. I have included a sheet for groups and arrays up to 6x6 and 12x12. The larger grid can be used when students have mastered creating groups, arrays, and equations. I prefer to laminate these sheets and have students use dry erase markers to create their groups, arrays, and equations.

With your class, work through a typical multiplication problem (ex. 2x3). Show your students how to make groups for a multiplication equation. Stay consistent with what number represents groups and what number represents pieces in the group (it helps your students!!) I always use # of groups X # of pieces in a group = product .

Once they have mastered groups, have students work on transferring their groups to arrays. The alternating colors and arrows will help them visualize where each group is placed.

When your class is comfortable creating both groups and arrays from equations, show them how to create groups and arrays from word problems. Finally, show your students how they can use groups and arrays to help them write multiplication equations for word problems.
