MULTIPLICATION

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

Materials:
The same as for addition.

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

Age:
5 years

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).
