Multiplication and Division
Posted by Rita DeLaRosa at 9/20/2012
For the past week students have been learning to understand the process of multiplication and how to solve problems using strategies. The students can use the traditional (long multiplication), the window, the lattice, distributive property, or the bowtie. It is best for the students to learn one of the processes instead of two because they start jumping from one to the other. I want them to learn the process really well. We need the students to keep practicing and learn their multiplication.
So please continue to work with your students on multiplication.
Next week, students will learn the process of division.
fractions involving using multiplication and division to discover equivalent fractions and reducing fractions.
