Understanding that multiplication is repeated addition of a certain number of groups of the same size is absolutely key in developing students’ foundational knowledge of this operation and lays the groundwork for razor-sharp fluency in the future.
Helping students see arrays as groups of objects arranged in columns and rows is pivotal to growing this understanding. To this end, the task cards (24 total) that follow provide opportunities for your students to see concrete examples of arrays in the real world.
After the task cards, additional worksheets with area models (24 models total) and opportunities are given for students to draw their own arrays (16 total). This helps students move from concrete examples of arrays to more abstract applications.
