Engage learners with these three multiplying whole numbers and decimals task card sets that are designed to help build conceptual understanding of multiplying whole numbers and decimals and for practice using the algorithm for fluency. These multiplying whole numbers and decimals activities can be used in small groups for students to demonstrate understanding, as center activities, or as walk-the-room activities. The whole numbers used in these task cards range from 1-9.
This activity contains 24 task cards. To use these task cards, students will need a number cube and math tools to build decimals. Students build a multiplication problem using base ten blocks or other decimal manipulatives, write an expression to represent the problem, solve the expression by looking at the problem that they built, and record the product in a journal or on the recording sheet included in this product.
This activity contains 24 task cards. Students translate repeated addition equations into multiplication sentences and then solve using a strategy that fits their readiness levels. This activity reinforces the meaning of multiplication: _____ groups of _____. Example: 0.22 + 0.22 + 0.22 + 0.22 = __. Multiplication sentence: 4 x 0.22 = __. (Think 4 groups of 0.22.) Product: 0.88.
This activity contains 28 task cards. Students calculate the products of the multiplication equations. This activity can be used to help build fluency of multiplying whole numbers and decimals. Students can use the algorithm, use repeated addition, or use math manipulatives.
In each task card set, there are decimals to the tenths place, hundredths place, and the thousandths place. Answer keys are included for two of the task card sets.
