These lessons include: helpful student notes on using the area model or partial products method for reference, guided and independent practice of multiplying 2-digit by 2-digit problems, 3-digit by 2-digit problems, 3-digit by 3-digit problems, and 4-digit by 3-digit problems, and play a game to reinforce the concept of multiplying multi-digit numbers by multi-digit numbers.

  • Segment 1: students will multiply a whole number of up to four digits by three-digit whole numbers, multiply two three-digit whole numbers, multiply multi-digit numbers using the area model, and multiply multi-digit numbers using partial products.
  • Segment 2: students will play the game “Multiplication Jump Around” to practice multiplying a whole number of up to four digits by three-digit whole numbers.

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