Students use place value understanding and visual representations to solve multiplication and division problems with multi-digit numbers. As a key area of focus for Grade 4, this module moves slowly but comprehensively to develop students’ ability to reason about the methods and models chosen to solve problems with multi-digit factors and dividends. It is essential to have a foundation in multiplication.




We will work on these assignments in class, but students are welcome to work at home, too. :)
