Product Description

Multiplication fluency is gained by practice with multiplication strategies that build fact fluency. Fluency is more than just recall. Fluency is the strategic use of mental math skills to arrive at accurate computation. This resource provides strategies, activities, games, practice pages and more to teach and achieve multiplication fluency.

There are two types of mental math strategies: foundational strategies and derivative strategies. Foundational strategies including counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, learning the squares (2, 4, 9, 16, etc.), as well as knowing the Identity and Zero Properties of Multiplication.

Derivative strategies build on the foundational strategies. They include halving and doubling, using a nearby square, adding or subtracting a group as well as, the Commutative and Distributive Properties of Multiplication.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

* 16 colorful charts to teach the Foundation Strategies

* 22 colorful charts to teach the Derivative Strategies

* A Sample Lesson Plan for a Foundation Strategy

* A Sample Lesson Plan for a Derivative Strategy

* Sequence for teaching the multiplication tables aligned with strategies

* Support Printables for the Foundation Strategies that include games, flashcards, bookmarks and more

* Support Printables for the Derivative Strategies that include games and templates

HOW IT WORKS

Teach the strategies until the student can use the strategy mentally. Similar to using addition and subtraction mental math strategies such as decomposing a number, compensating, doubles, or doubles plus one, these mental math multiplication strategies can lead the student to multiplication fluency.

Incorporate the resources into any existing math curriculum or program. Then use the resources to enhance a multiplication unit of study. Start out by teaching explicitly one of the strategies using one of the teaching charts. Then use the included templates (derivative strategies only) to have students practice step by step the strategy. Follow up with the included games and practice pages.

A Sample Lesson Plan gives the teacher an outline on how to focus on one specific strategy. These strategies are taught at any pace the teacher sets which should be dependent on the internalization of the strategies by the student.
