Deriver X/÷

Uses strategies, patterns, de/composition (12 x 2 = 10 x 2 + 2 + 2) and derived combinations, such as multiplying x 9 as 10 – 1 or 7 x 8 from 7 x 7 + 7. Solves multidigit problems by operating on tens and ones separately. Quantitatively predicts the effects of changes in the number of people sharing one the size of the shares.

Help your student become a(n) Deriver X/÷

These activities challenge children to solve  multiplication problems using flexible strategies that go beyond skip counting to include some know facts. For example,“7 X 7 is 49, so 8 X 7 is one more 7…56." Encourage children to create, learn, discuss, and use variety of strategies.
