Last week, a group of my fourth graders started down the road to learning their multiplication facts. In theory, they should have a working knowledge of multiplication but in this case they must have been out for the unit. Which means, I get to have all the fun!!!. I came across this pin and thought with a sneaky smile that they would love this.
But to get their to a place where we go raise the roof we had to start from the beginning. What's the beginning, you ask. Its an anchor chart and knowing the scope and sequence to getting them to three digit factors times three-digit factor. If you don't know the basic multiplication facts you can't to multiple digit multiplication. After the basic math facts and by the end of third grade, students should be able to do one-digit factor times two- or three- factor. (5 x 35, 43 x 9)
By the end of fourth grade (in order):
one digit times three-digit factor (405 x 2) ; one digit times three-digit factor, horizontal alignment (364 x 5); two-digit factor times two-digit factor (37 x 25); two-digit factor times three-digit factor (324 x 29).
By the end of fifth grade (in order):
three-digit times three digit factor (284 x 346); three digit-factors times three-digit factor, zero in the tens (382 x 506,320 x 402).
After they start getting the facts down, we're going to move to the scope and sequence a laid out above. And I have only four weeks before they move on to division. Have a great week.
