This is a complete lesson for third grade with teaching & word problems with the aim of teaching children some basics about multiplication word problems. The basic idea is that we have groups of same size, and children need to just recognize those groups, whether they be towels, pizza slices, balls, or whatever. The word problems in the lesson also involve addition and subtraction so that students need to think, and not apply the operation at hand (multiplication) without even reading the problem.
4 × 7 = 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 28 clothes.
4 × 1 =1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 4 clothes.
1 × 4 = 4 clothes.
4 × 7 = 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 = 28 clothes.
Rate this question:
7 + 7 + 7 + 7 = 28
14 + 14 = 28
4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 28
28 + 0 = 28
2 × 3 = 3 + 3 = 6 puppies
