I used this document to assess my students' abilities to recognize equations and strip diagrams as they relate to word problems as well as multiplication skills.
Objectives Covered (TEKS):
- 4.4D use strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm, to multiply up to a four-digit number by a one-digit number and to multiply a two-digit number by a two-digit number. Strategies may include mental math, partial products, and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties;
- 4.5A represent multi-step problems involving the four operations with whole numbers using strip diagrams and equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity
