Multiplying Whole Numbers
Lesson 1 : Multiplication Properties
Main Idea: Students identify and apply the Commutative, Associative, and Zero Properties of Multiplication. They learn how the properties of multiplication can be used to simplify computation and to verify mental math and paper and pencil algorithms. Standard(s): 5.NBT.B.7 Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.

Main Idea: Students mentally compute products of whole numbers using placevalue patterns and the properties of multiplication. They learn how basic facts and placevalue patterns can be used to find a multiple of 10 or a multiple of 100.

They learn how the standard algorithm for multiplying a 2digit number by a multiple of ten is an extension of the algorithm for multiplying multidigit numbers by a 1digit number. They also learn how area models can be used to visualize this process. Standard(s): 5.NBT.B.5 Fluently multiply multidigit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

They learn how the standard algorithm for multiplying whole numbers with factors having three or more digits is just an extension of the algorithm for multiplying twodigit numbers by twodigit numbers to greater place values. Standard: 5.NBT.B.5 Fluently multiply multidigit whole numbers using the standard algorithm. Related Links: Lesson 6: Problem Solving Draw a Picture and Write an Equation Main Idea: Students use diagrams and write equations to solve problems. They learn how information in a problem can often be shown using a diagram and used to solve the problem. They also learn how some problems can be solved by writing and completing a number sentence or equation. Standard(s): 5.NBT.B.5 Fluently multiply multidigit whole numbers using the standard algorithm. Related Links: Thinking Blocks Model and Solve Word Problems
