I use this as a station activity to allow students to practice 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication in a manner that creates excitement. Algorithm, Distributive Property, Partial Products, Area Model?
Students can use their tool of choice to solve! Students solve and then check with a QR Code reader. There are also task cards without QR codes if you want to use this product without the digital
12 task cards with QR Codes/ 12 without QR Codes

TEKS Supported by this activity
4.4(D) use strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm, to multiply up to a four-digit number by a one-digit number and to multiply a two-digit number by a two-digit number. Strategies may include mental math, partial products, and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties
