Every Child Can Do! No Fail Multiplication and Division Strategies!
Multiplying and dividing are two of the basic math operations that every student needs to not just know, but needs to understand. Students will learn to draw visual representations using multiple strategies to solve single digit problems. Each strategy helps students to understand the concept and gives them tools in their toolbox to attack problems when they don’t know the answer. In my classroom, there is no guessing! Students have as many as six different ways to find the answer.
Multiplication and division has been made easy and every student has at least one strategy that they know, understand, and can use. Students learn cups and counters, criss cross, arrays, patterns, and more. By using these templates my students have a deep understanding of these concepts. Using these strategies also supports Common Core as students are able to recognize multiplication and division in many different formats and representations. Though these strategies are easiest to use when learning single digit problems, they do also work for harder ones but will be more time consuming.
In this purchase, you get a step by step explanation of each strategy, sample templates with explanations, and blank templates that can be used with any problem. You get this for both multiplication lessons and division lessons.
Every single student can learn these easy strategies and increase their foundational understanding of these concepts! Students will enjoy learning, drawing, and mastering basic multiplication and division! This has been a never do without again WINNER in my classroom for years now!
