Multiplication Break Apart Strategy
Grade: 4 th grade/Subject: Math Standards: 4.NBT.5 – Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area. OVERVIEW: In this lesson, students will learn a new strategy to help them multiply a two digit number by a one digit number. Students will learn how to break-apart the multiplication equation so that it is easier to solve. The equation will break down into multiple equations that are easily solved, and then added together. In this lesson, students will watch a lesson describing the instructions on how to use this strategy. Students will then watch a video that shows additional information about how to use the break-apart multiplication strategy. Finally, I will review the strategy with the students. After the students watch the screencast, I will have them go to a website to practice playing a game to review some basic problems that they can break apart. Students practice this strategy using smaller numbers. After this, they will be required to complete some problems on their own to show what they have learned. LESSON OBJECTIVE: Students will be able to multiply a number with up to two digits by a one digit number using the break-apart strategy. INSTRUCTIONS: List the instructions that the student should follow. (Be sure to include links to videos, assignments, resources, etc.) 1. Watch the screencast lesson. 2. Practice some multiplication facts by playing this interactive game. Practice 2-3 sets of problems. 3. Copy the problems from this link in your math notebook and solve them using the break-apart strategy. If you need additional help, you can watch this video. Turn in your assignment to me for a grade.
