This Common Core math lesson teaches students how to solve word problems involving multiplier comparisons. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students will translate plain English descriptions of multiplier comparisons (“three times as many...”) into a mathematical expression and solve the resulting problem. This lesson is an excellent introduction to deciphering multiplication word problems and includes several examples for students to complete. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of independent practice with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.
