This set of 20 task cards give students practice with multiplication word problems, 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication, 4 digit by 1 digit multiplication, and writing equations using a statement of multiplicative comparison. A student recording sheet and an answer key for teachers is included.
The standards these task cards cover include but are not limited to the following:
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.B.5 Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.OA.A.1 Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
CCSS.Math.Content.5.NBT.B.5 Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
I hope you and your students enjoy this activity! Please remember to leave feedback!
