Multiplication Stategies

We have been focusing on the times tables of 2, 3,4,5 and 10. Today we played a game called number square where we apply our knowledge of products. In groups of three, we took turns to answer a multiplication equation.
Once an answer is given, a classmate challenges and asks for an explanation. We also created a list of the strategies that we use when solving multiplication problems. To extend the exercise, through the use of the application, we created a table with factors that we chose and continued to apply our knowledge of products. Ms Montilla invited us to a number talk after this to see how our strategies may be transfered. We eneded up looking at many ways of solving 38 x 6 and emphasizing once more that mistakes prove you're trying and help you know your next steps.
