This PowerPoint is an effective and instrumental tool to teach various strategies for multiplication. It begins with an open ended question for students to share their problem solving methods and continues to demonstrate various strategies for multiplication. Including, extended form, and various area models.
Lesson is designed to maintain students's attention by utilizing transitions and animations on each page. Also designed to keep the teacher on target.
Many hours went into preparing this lesson and it is one I come back to time and time again.
I have used this with year 5 students in Australia and would be suitable for 3rd or 4th grade curriculum in the US.
