These 12 cards detail the steps of decimal multiplication (ones/tenths times ones/tenths) using the standard algorithm (Common Core). They are color-coded; the current step is shown in red. You can use them in your classroom as a resource for all students, or for a select few who need additional practice or help remembering the steps. I am currently using them as a targeted intervention for my fifth grade students who haven't yet mastered multiplication, or multiplication of decimals. I printed them in color on card stock, laminated, and cut them. Then, I punched holes in each of the cards and attached them to a silver binder ring so that my students could easily keep them in order.
This resource could also be great if you have parents who learned multiplication a different way when they were in school and therefore feel unable to help their children with the "new" standard algorithm.
