Students solve 3 word problems that use multiplication. They must show their answer in three ways - a picture, repeated addition, and the multiplication equation. They are prompted on the first problem for what the repeated addition and multiplication equation should look like. On the second and third problems, however, they must figure out how to write the repeated addition and multiplication equation on their own. This is great for students getting ready to take Common Core and other state tests. These tests often ask multiplication and division questions by showing pictures or repeated addition/subtraction!
This activity works well in stations or centers!
