Lesson Plan Description
This 1 hour math lesson addresses interpreting products: using groupings, repeated addition and skip counting (3.OA.A1). This lesson is intended to be an introductory lesson on interpreting products through drawings and groupings. Students will recognize the relationship between multiplication and repeated addition. In addition to this they will show products in multiplication as a multiplication equation matching “a” number of groups with “b” number of objects in each group. The lesson begins with review and note taking for reference, then moves into partner or independent practice, and concludes with a short exit slip to check for understanding.
