Students are beginning to combine strategies as they solve multiplication problems. This is very impressive! This means that they are seeing similarities between strategies, showing that they have mastered a wide variety of multiplication strategies. Students are encouraged to show these strategies and explain how they are able to combine them. They will be using apps on the iPads such as Screenchomp and Popplet Lite to create products that showcase their thinking as they connect these various strategies.
Looking forward, we will have a test on Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction, Place Value, and Rounding on Tuesday, October 15th. We will begin reviewing for this test later this week. A review sheet outlining what students are expected to know for the test will go home Wednesday.
