3-6 Math Album – Multiplication

MULTIPLICATION

Purpose: 

To give the children the experience of the process of multiplication.
Multiplicand x Multiplier = Product.

Materials:

The same as for addition.

Presentation: 

The same procedure as for static and dynamic addition.
Ensure that each of the children have the same number; and when reviewing the children will note that the same number was brought so many times!
Name the process – ‘multiplication’.

Exercise: 

As in the presentation.

Exercise 2:

Introduce multiplier card.
After the children have completed several examples, review the completed equation.
Explain that it is not necessary to lay the multiplicand out so many times – a multiplier card may be used (use a small unit card which is placed under the multiplicand as in a written problem).

Control: 

The teacher. However the emphasis is on the process not on the exact result.
