We kicked off our second math unit! We are focusing on multiplication. One of our 4th grade goals is to master 3 digit by 1 digit multiplication and 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication.
The OLS structures lessons to start with the area model of multiplication, partial product multiplication, and then the standard algorithm.
"Area model multiplication gives students another way to visualize a math equation, which is extremely valuable. Not all kids (or adults) think in the same way. When you give them more ways to approach a math problem, they're more likely to succeed. More importantly, the area model method helps students understand how math works. And as the equations they solve become more complicated, the purpose behind area models becomes much more clear." -Jill Staake from We Are Teachers
Our goal is to expose our students to multiple methods, so they can find the one that works best for them.
Encourage your student to master their math facts! Practice a few minutes each day. Learning them now will save lots of frustration when we get to double digit multiplication and fractions.
