Interpreting Products Bundle with a Game

3rd Grade • Lesson Plan Bundle

Lesson Plan Description

Solidify your 3rd graders sense of number using different methods to “see” and solve multiplication problems.  In this bundle of lessons, your students will:

  • Segment 1: collaborate with peers and practice the “language” of math in order to practice recognizing the relationship between multiplication, repeated addition as well as show products in multiplication as a multiplication equation matching “a” number of groups with “b” number of objects in each group
  • Segment 2: use arrays and columns to deepen students’ understanding of the relationship between multiplication, repeated addition, skip counting and the resulting products
  • Segment 3: demonstrate their understanding of this skill using various tools such as arrays in rows or columns or an area model to interpret products

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
