Stage 1 – Identify Desired Results
Content Standards:
Georgia Performance Standard:
M2N3- Students will understand multiplication, multiplying numbers, and verify results.
a.) Understand multiplication as repeated addition
b.) Use repeated addition, arrays, and counting by multiples (skip counting) to correctly
multiply 1-digit numbers and construct the multiplication table.
c.) Use the multiplication table (grid) to determine a product of two numbers.
d.) Use repeated subtraction, equal sharing, and forming equal groups to divide large
collections of objects and determine factors of multiplication.
Understandings
Students will understand that:
• Multiplication is simply repeated addition and can be applied to various given
numbers.
• Multiplication tables/ charts can be interpreted and used as a tool to help discover the
product of two numbers, usually from 0- 12.
• Previously acquired knowledge of addition and subtraction can be transferred and
applied for use within multiplication.
• Arrays are a visual way to explain and understand multiplication.
• Skip counting is a tool to develop mental math strategies for multiplication.
• Multiplication is a vital tool for future mathematical success.
• Multiplication can be applied in everyday situations throughout life.
• Multiplication strategies must be internalized for quick recall.
3.
• There are multiple strategies for figuring out multiplication problems.
Related Misconceptions:
• Multiplication is a “new” concept, so it is scary and hard to understand.
• Adding numbers multiple times does not give the second number in the equation.
• Multiplication is all about memorization.
• There is only one way to do multiplication.
Essential Questions
Overarching Questions:
• What does math mean to you?
• When and how can we use math in our
daily lives?
• Why is the understanding of math
concepts important for your future?
• How might adults use math?
• If math did not exist what else
wouldn’t be possible?
Topical Questions:
• Why is multiplication important to
learn?
• What would life be like without
multiplication?
• How do mental strategies help us
calculate math faster?
• How is multiplication a stepping-
stone?
• How can we “show” multiplication?
• How is multiplication similar and/or
different from addition and
subtraction?
