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.

### There are seven rocks in each box. That is a total of  ...

• A.

4 × 7 = 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 28 clothes.

• B.

4 × 1 =1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 4 clothes.

• C.

1 × 4 = 4 clothes.

• D.

4 × 7 = 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 = 28 clothes.

D. 4 × 7 = 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 = 28 clothes.
Explanation
The correct answer is 4 × 7 = 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 = 28 clothes. This is because there are four boxes, and each box contains seven rocks. To find the total number of clothes, we multiply the number of boxes (4) by the number of rocks in each box (7), which gives us 28 clothes.

### Each puppy's house has three puppies living in it.How many puppies live in the puppy's houses?

• A.

2 × 3 = 3 + 3 = 6 puppies

• B.

3 × 2 = 3 + 3 = 6 puppies

• C.

3 × 2 = 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 puppies

• D.

2 × 3 = 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 puppies

A. 2 × 3 = 3 + 3 = 6 puppies
Explanation
The explanation for the given answer is that each puppy's house has three puppies living in it. So, if we multiply the number of houses (2) by the number of puppies in each house (3), we get a total of 6 puppies. Additionally, we can also add the number of puppies in each house (3 + 3) to get the same result of 6 puppies.

### The SAME amount of something IN EACH thing is often solved by multiplying.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
This statement is true because when there is the same amount of something in each thing, it implies that the quantity is consistent and equal. In such cases, multiplying can be used as a mathematical operation to determine the total amount. By multiplying the same amount by the number of things, we can calculate the total quantity. Therefore, the statement is correct.

• A.

6 × 2 = 6 + 6 = 12 balls

• B.

6 × 2 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 12 balls

• C.

2 × 6 = 6 + 6 = 12 balls

• D.

2 × 6 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 12 balls

B. 6 × 2 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 12 balls
Explanation
The correct answer is obtained by multiplying the number of children (5) by the number of balls each child brought (2). This gives us a total of 10 balls. However, since the question asks for the total number of balls, we need to add the two balls that were already brought by the children, resulting in a total of 12 balls.
