- A child recognizes 3 x 6 + 3 = 4 x 6 as a true statement without performing all computations.
- Given a situation involving two data sets, relates the columns in a t-chart, describing the specific math transformation that would apply to each number in the first column to generate the corresponding number in the second column.
Help your student become a(n) Relational Thinker with Multiplication
|Activities build on the previous levels to now feature multiplicative thinking and the distributive property, lets you multiply a sum by multiplying each addend separately and then add the products, such as in 5 X 7 = 5 X (5 + 2) = 5 X 5 + (5 X 2) = 25 + 10 = 35. Math talk and the use of multiple strategies are important, as it discussing why different strategies can yield the same answer.|
