Students can practice setting up a repeated addition problem at this center to help them understand that even with larger numbers, multiplication is still just repeated addition. It also gives them a way to check their answer on an assessment when solving with the algorithm.

This is a center that also goes well with these centers. It is the Multiplying a two digit by one digit problem with the traditional algorithm. It is valuable to teach this alongside other ways that show the steps and logic behind it like the repeated addition and area models.

This center is also out and accompanies the Algorithm and Repeated Addition Stations well. It uses the area model for two-digit by one digit numbers, which is basically like breaking the two digit number into expanded form, then adding both numbers to the one-digit. This also helps students see what is happening behind the algorithm.
