What is the video about? The video teaches a few different methods for solving multiplication
word problems and gives an example.
Video url: http://www.teachertube.com/video/ways-to-solve-multiplication-problems-1464
Standard: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.OA.A.3 Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve
word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g.,
by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the
problem.

How will I use this video to teach my lesson?
This video is a really good example of how to use the different techniques for solving
multiplication word problems. I would play it as an introduction to the lesson. I would make a
worksheet for the students that had the tennis ball word problem used in the video and then
blank space for the students to work it out using the techniques from the video; this would
allow them to have something tangible to compare future problems to later. Periodically
throughout the video, I would pause it and show the students on the board and give them time
to ask questions. After the video, I would hand out another worksheet with 3 multiplication
word problems and instruct the students to work in groups and solve each of the problems
using the 3 methods for each. Once the students are finishing up that assignment, I would have
each table group send a student to the front to solve a problem on the white board.

nickels, dimes, and quarters showing what amount they each represent.

Standard: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.C.8 Solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters,
dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately. Example: If you have 2 dimes
and 3 pennies, how many cents do you have?

How will I use this video to teach my lesson?
I will use this video to teach the students how much each coin it worth. I would have
real coins for each table to pick up and touch as much as they want. Before the video, I will do
an introduction about money and how we use it every day to buy things. I want the students to
understand that this lesson is important to them functioning in the real world. The video will
introduce the amounts and then from there they will do addition and subtraction problems
with coins. I will have the students find different combinations of coins that add up to a dollar
or fifty cents. At the end of the lesson, I will play the video again and tell the students to count
aloud with the video to solidify the information learned.
