2 Getting Started Mathematical Practices SMP2, SMP4, SMP5, SMP6, SMP7, SMP8 Content Standards 3.OA.5, 3.OA.7, 3.OA.9, 3.NBT.2 Mental Math and Reflexes Children count from 1 to 3, clapping at the intervals described below. every 5th number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (clap), 6, 7, 8, 9, 1 (clap), 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 (clap), and so on to 3 every 3rd number 1, 2, 3 (clap), 4, 5, 6 (clap), 7, 8, 9 (clap), and so on to 3 every 4th number 1, 2, 3, 4 (clap), 5, 6, 7, 8 (clap), 9, 1, 11, 12 (clap), and so on to 3 Math Message 7 4 = 28 is a multiplication fact. Write 5 other multiplication facts. Home Link 4 4 Follow-Up Have partners describe to each other how they solved one of the problems. 1 Teaching the Lesson Math Message Follow-Up DISCUSSION Multiplication facts are products of two 1-digit numbers. Have children call out multiplication facts, with or without the products, while you write them on the board. Use both horizontal formats (with the product to the left and the right) and vertical formats. Tell children that the symbols * and are sometimes used to show multiplication. The numbers being multiplied are factors. The result of multiplication is the product. To support English language learners, label some of the facts written on the board with the words factor and product. Encourage children to use this vocabulary, but do not insist on it. ELL 2 3 = 6 18 = 9 * = Different multiplication formats Reviewing the Importance of Fact Power DISCUSSION Ask children to name some good and some bad habits. A habit is an automatic behavior that comes from doing something over and over again. Developing basic number-fact reflexes is developing a good habit. In Everyday Mathematics, fact habits are referred to as fact power. Stress to children that they need to learn the multiplication and division facts so that they can solve multidigit multiplication and division problems. Reviewing Shortcuts for Multiplication Facts (Math Masters, p. 95) Algebraic Thinking Tell children they will review shortcuts that will help them develop a good habit knowing the multiplication facts by heart. Lesson

3 4 3 = 12 and 3 4 = 12 NOTE It is not expected that children use formal terms for the properties of multiplication. It is important for them to know, however, that order does not matter when multiplying factors, that multiplying any number by 1 results in a product that is that number, and that multiplying any number by results in a product of. The Turn-around Shortcut Illustrate the turn-around shortcut (Commutative Property of Multiplication) by writing several fact phrases for small numbers, such as 4 3, on the board. Pair each fact with its turn around, or commutative partner 4 3 and 3 4. The order of the factors does not change the product, so if you know 3 4 = 12, you also know 4 3 = 12. Include square numbers, such as 3 3 and 5 5, and point out that the turn-around fact for a square number is the same as the original fact. Then have children use Math Masters, page 95 to make arrays for the facts you suggest. Children write number models under each array. The arrays that children draw represent the multiplication turn-around facts, similar in principle to the addition turn-around facts. You may wish to use an overhead of the master to model building arrays. Ask: What number models made square arrays? Sample answers: 3 3 = 9 and 5 5 = 25 Ask: What is the pattern of these number models? The factors are the same. Ask: How can you know if a number model will make a square array? If the number model has two identical factors, it will make a square array. Name Date Time Teaching Master 4 3 Grid The Multiplication by 1 Shortcut If 1 is multiplied by any number, or any number is multiplied by 1, the product is that number (Multiplicative Identity). Tell a few times 1 and 1 times number stories, and have children tell some. For example: There are 8 flowers in a pot. You have 1 pot. How many flowers do you have? 1 8 = 8; 8 1 = 8. You have 8 flowers. There is 1 ring in each box. You have 6 boxes. How many rings do you have? 1 6 = 6; 6 1 = 6. You have 6 rings. Adjusting the Activity ELL As you review the number stories, record the number models on the board so that children will be able to see the patterns for the shortcut. A U D I T O R Y K I N E S T H E T I C T A C T I L E V I S U A L Math Masters, p Unit 4 Multiplication and Division The Multiplication by Shortcut If is multiplied by any number, or any number is multiplied by, the product is (Zero Property of Multiplication). Tell a few times and times number stories, and have children tell some, including some with larger numbers. For example: There are 1 cookies in a box. You have boxes. How many cookies do you have? 1 = ; 1 =. You have cookies.

4 There are cookies per box. You have 1 boxes. How many cookies do you have? 1 = ; 1 =. You have cookies. The Familiar Facts Shortcut Tell children that the 2s, 5s, and 1s facts are simply counts by 2s, 5s, and 1s remind them of the Mental Math and Reflexes exercise. Have the class recite in unison the 2s, 5s, and 1s facts in order. Point out the following patterns: The products of 2s and 1s facts are always even numbers. (The products of 4s, 6s, and 8s facts are also always even.) The products of 5s facts always end in or 5. The products of 1s facts always end in. Additional Strategies with Familiar Facts 4 times any number can always be decomposed into 2 equal addends. 4 7 can be thought of as 2 7 = 14 and 2 7 = 14. To find the product of 4 7, the two products can be added together = 28, so 4 7 = 28. Break one factor into easy addends. For example, 6 7 can be thought of as 6 5 = 3 and 6 2 = 12. The two products, 3 and 12, can be added together to find the product of = 42, so 6 7 = 42. Taking the Fact Power Challenge Divide the class into two groups. Pose a multiplication fact problem. Children in one group use calculators to find the product. Children in the other group find the product without using calculators. Repeat the activity with other multiplication facts. Mix easy and hard facts, so that children in each group can get the product first some of the time. Children are generally surprised to find that fact power can indeed beat the calculator.

When the minute hand is on the 8, the time is 4 minutes past the hour: 5 8 = 4. When the minute hand is on the 2, the time is 1 minutes past the hour: 2 5 = 1. Pose other clock facts. Games AUDITORY KINESTHETIC TACTILE VISUAL 7 Games 7 NOTE This activity makes the point that for many easy problems, mental calculation is quicker than using a calculator. Over time, children should develop good judgment about when to estimate and when to use calculators, calculate mentally, or use paper and pencil. Playing Beat the Calculator (Multiplication) (Student Reference Book, p. 279; Math Journal 1, p. 156; Math Masters, p. 446) SMALL-GROUP Have children examine the Fact Power Table on journal page 156. The unshaded facts include the s, 1s, and 1s facts as well as the facts from Activity Sheets 1 and 2. The shaded facts are from Activity Sheets 3 and 4. Lesson

5 Date Time Subtraction Strategies Make a ballpark estimate. Write a number model to show your estimate. Choose at least two problems to solve using the counting-up method. You may choose any method you wish to solve the other problems. 1. Ballpark estimate: 2. Ballpark estimate: 3. Ballpark estimate: Ballpark estimate: 5. Ballpark estimate: 6. Ballpark estimate: Math Journal 1, p. 88 Student Page Estimates vary. Explain to children that they will use the Fact Power Table during Beat the Calculator games to record the facts they get correct while playing the role of the Brain. When children have earned 3 check marks for a fact, they write the product in the table. The page will become a cumulative record of their progress toward multiplication fact power. Divide the class into groups of three to play Beat the Calculator. If necessary, review the directions on page 279 in the Student Reference Book. Have children follow the steps below to record their wins on their Fact Power Table. 1. The Caller selects a problem at random from the Fact Power Table on journal page The Brain finds the product without a calculator. The Calculator finds the product using a calculator. 3. The Caller determines whether the Brain or the Calculator got the product first. 4. If the Brain beats the Calculator and announces the correct product, the Caller makes a check mark in the box for that fact on the Brain s Fact Power Table. Once a fact has three check marks, the Brain writes the product in that box to indicate that the fact has been mastered. 5. You might wish to pass out Beat the Calculator triangles (Math Masters, page 446) to assist with assigning roles to players. NOTE Playing this game frequently will help develop children s automaticity with multiplication facts. Remind children to use their copy of the Fact Power Table on journal page 156 as a record sheet during Beat the Calculator games. Date Math Boxes Student Page Time 2 Ongoing Learning & Practice 1.

6 Ongoing Assessment: Recognizing Student Achievement Math Boxes Problem 5 Use Math Boxes, Problem 5 to assess children s progress toward finding the area of rectangular shapes. Children are making adequate progress if they are able to draw the rectangle and find the area. Some children might be able to write the number model for the area.

The same is true if any number is multiplied by and and ,365 and 9,365 Think about counting by 2s, 5s, and 1s Math Masters, p. 96 READINESS Building Facts on a Geoboard (Math Masters, p. 97) 5 15 Min To provide experience with multiplication facts using a concrete model, have children use rubber bands on a geoboard to find products for basic facts. Children record their work on Math Masters, page 97. When they have finished, briefly review which of the facts might be easiest to remember. ENRICHMENT Creating Fact Shortcuts PARTNER 15 3 Min To further explore fact shortcuts, have children write their own fact shortcut for facts they already know. They explain their shortcut on paper and include an example. Possible shortcuts: If I know 2 times a number, adding one more of that number would be 3 times the number. If I know 2 times a number, doubling the answer would be 4 times the number. If I know 1 times a number, I can subtract the number once and have 9 times the number. The children s shortcuts make a wonderful classroom resource. Consider binding them into a class book. Name Date Time Building Facts on a Geoboard For each problem: Use a rubber band to make each rectangle on a geoboard. Draw the rectangle onto this record sheet. Record the number of pins inside the rubber band as the answer to the problem pins pins Make up problems of your own. 5. pins Answers vary.
