(Fractions and Multiplication Strategies)
By the end of this unit students will be able to:
**interpret products of whole numbers (That means students will be able to understand that 5 x 7 is the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7)
**use multiplication with 100 to solve word problems in situations invoving equal groups, arrays, and measurements by using drawings and equations.
**use the adding a group and subtracting a group (distributive property) as strategies to multiply.
** know from mastery all products of one-digit numbers x 10, and fluently multiply within 100 using strategies including adding a gorup and subtracting a group.
** identify arithmetic patterns in the addition table, multiplication table, or number grid.
**identify and represent given unit and non-unit fractions using pictures, words, and fraction circles.
**find the area of a rectangle with whole number side lengths by tiling it, and recognize that the area is the same as multiplying length times width
