### Description

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.

Goals:

1) To understand what it means to multiply whole numbers and decimals
2) To find the connection between multiplying whole numbers and decimal and whole numbers
3) To determine patterns of multiplying numbers with and without decimals in order to create efficient strategies for multiplying decimals

Rather than teaching students the procedure using rules such as “multiply as though they are whole numbers and then move the decimal back in”, we are going to explore what multiplication of a whole number by a decimal actually means. Our goal is to develop conceptual understanding and to build number sense.
