This is a complete unit to develop students understanding of multiplication and division using word problems, pictures, number lines, repeated addition or subtraction equations and arrays. It explores the difference between addition and multiplication equations. It also looks at that challenging question is 2 x 5 the same or different than 5 x 2. This unit gives students lots of practice to learn each of these skills and it gradually, in a logical sequence builds on them.
This unit works well with Multiplication and Division Parent Helper, designed to help parents understand how we are teaching students multiplication and division.
