Our 3rd graders at South Baton Rouge Charter Academy have been learning different strategies for solving multiplication problems. Throughout this unit, students created arrays and applied the distributive property to break apart unfamiliar facts into facts they were familiar with in order to solve the problem. They also used repeated addition, skip counting, and the number line to solve problems. Students are learning their division facts by relating multiplication facts to division. The students have made tremendous progress with under-standing the concepts and applications of multiplication.
