- Learners use these cards to match & sort visual representations of multiplication expressions with their visual equivalents
- The purpose of these cards is to encourage math talk and conceptual understanding around the skill of multiplication
- It is appropriate for any level of multiplication
- Cards can easily be modified based on readiness
- Present only certain cards
- Ask for more than one connection. There are many options like this included
- Provide one representation and have a competition to find the most numeric equivalents
- Whole group, small group, pairs
- The purpose of this activity is NOT to get right answers; encourage math talk
- Ask learners to explain their thinking
- Encourage learners to talk to each other

Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
