Multiplication of Whole Numbers & Decimals
Create a presentation (Powerpoint, NearPod, ShowMe, etc.) with a decimal point and multiplication symbol bouncing around on the screen. Ask students if they can identify the symbols and what they mean? Then ask if they know what to do once we connect these two operations together?
Key Standards Supported
Number And Operations In Base Ten
Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
