Unit 2 Assessment scheduled for 09/28/2018
Students were introduced to multiplication/division strategies with a game called Circles & Stars. We used dice to choose a number to multiply. You can view an example of Circles & Stars at the folowing website: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8hk0DJVKoE
We also learned about arrays (see the graphic above) an how they relate to multiplication and division, as well as strategies such as repeated addition/subtraction, and multiplication/division on a number line.
Students are asked to study multiplication facts each night and have a 5 minute timed test each Friday to determine what level each student has mastered. By the end of October they should know 0 - 10's.
If your child is struggling with remembering multiplication facts, please consider purchasing flash cards to help them memorize them. You can view a multiplication facts kahoot.it here:
