With all of the different methods being taught for multi-digit multiplication, it can be overwhelming for students, parents, and teachers!
This is a step-by-step guide through the four main types of multi-digit multiplication: Traditional Method (how we were taught!), Partitioned Rectangles Method, Partial Products Method, and Lattice Method.
I give each of my students a copy to follow along with as I teach each method, as well as to utilize when they are working independently. Some years, depending on my class makeup, I give them a second copy to keep in their homework folders to assist them at home.
I hope you will find this to be as useful to you as it has been in my classroom (and those of my co-teachers) for the past several years.
