Lesson 1: Introduction to MultiplicationIn this lesson we will be introduced to the basics of multiplication. In this lesson we will learn how to use the multiplication chart and how multiplication is related to other kinds of math. For example, multiplication is not only repeated addition, but is also the opposite of division.
Lesson 2: Estimating ProductsIn this lesson we will be learning how to estimate products. Do you remember how to round to the nearest 10? Great! That means you can estimate. We will learn to solve questions similar to the one below. A basket holds 23 apples. How many apples does 5 baskets hold? We know that the number 23 would round down to 20.
That means we have to solve 5x20
5x20=100 5 baskets hold approximately 100 apples.
Lesson 3: Multiplication PatternsIn this lesson we will be learning various multiplication patterns. We will learn how we can use basic multiplication facts to solve for more difficult facts. For example, we will learn to solve questions similar to the one below. 4x6=24
Lesson 4: Multiplying 2-digit by 1-digit numbersIn this lesson we will learn how to multiply 2-digit by 1-digit numbers. It is much easier than it looks! We will learn to solve questions similar to the ones below. 23 72 64
