3.OA.4 Determine the Unknown Whole Number in a Multiplication Equation Relating Three Whole Numbers
The following pages bring a variety of Math Core Curriculum-aligned activities for your third, fourth and fifth graders while helping them build a mastery of multiplication from 0 to 10. All the questions below involve one missing factor that your students need to supply and also involve identifying the product of the multiplication equation.
Page 3 - Bits and Bytes of Zeroes and Ones
Start off with the simplest numbers in multiplication: 0 and 1. Your students will learn that any number multiplied with 0 is 0 and any number multiplied with 1 results with 1.
Page 4 - Clues with Twos
This section contains two sets of multiplication problems with the number 2. In the first set, your students will write the missing factor to complete the equation and in the second set, they will find the products and use them to get the answer to a riddle.
Page 5 - Bunnies and Threes
Your students will fill in the factors that make the equations involving 3 true, and then connect the dots in the order of their answers to reveal a rabbit figure. They will also learn that adding the digits of a product of 3 results in a number that is also a product of 3.
Page 6 - Dogs on All Fours
While completing the multiplication equations involving 4, your students will decode a message that answers the name of the dog constellations and follow the dots to see what one looks like.
Page 7 - High Five!
As your students fill in the correct factor that completes the multiplication equation of 5, they will also learn that the multiples of 5 end with a 0 or a 5.
Page 8 - Circles and Sixes
This page contains two sets of activities: one has equations of 6 that has missing factors, and the second set is a hidden equation game, where your students will find the ones involving 6.
Page 9 - Seven Colors of the Rainbow
After filling in the missing numbers that complete the equation involving 7, your students will complete a table with the products of 7 and trace a path following the order of the products in a rainbow maze.
Page 10 - Balloon Fun with Eights
On the balloon where your students will put the numbers to complete multiplication equation are letters that will help decode a message that holds the answer to a riddle.
Page 11 - Catching Fishes at Nine
Learn the multiplication of 9s by supplying the missing numbers that complete the equation.
Page 12 - Building Blocks of Ten
Wrap up the lesson with a run-through of multiplication equations with 10.
