Session One Gather students together for a story. Show them the cover of Pancakes for Breakfast by Tomie dePaola. Tell them that this book has pictures but no words, so they are going to tell the story themselves. Have students tell the story page by page, the way the author might have written it if he or she had used words.
A key way to teach multiplication is via multiplication sentences. Unlike a traditional sentence, multiplication sentences use numbers and symbols to express a statement. By learning multiplication sentences, fourth graders learn how multiplication and addition relate to each other. Parts of a Multiplication Sentence A multiplication sentence consists of two parts: In multiplication, a mathematical expression is the part of the sentence that comes before the equal sign.
The mathematical expression contains the factors and the multiplication symbol. The mathematical expressions doesn't include the answer, which is also known as the product. Create Sentences Using Arrays Before students can learn about multiplication sentences, they must understand the concept of an array.
An array consists of a set of numbers or objects arranged in columns and rows -- usually on a grid. This makes it possible to count the number of columns and to multiply the resulting value by the number of rows.
This forms the basis for multiplication sentences and prepares students for more advanced math. For example, show the students an array that has nine objects in each row, and a total of six rows. Show them that they can count each individual item in the array, or they can multiply nine times six for a product of The ability to construct a multiplication sentence extends beyond the classroom, by preparing students to calculate large numbers of items.
A student who knows how to create his own multiplication sentences can look at a five-by-five grid of items and will know that the grid contains a total of 25 items. Ask the students to count the number of rows in a picture and then write that number down on their papers.
Then, write a multiplication symbol and write the number of columns after the symbol. In a five-by-six grid, students should write "5 x 6," with "x" as the symbol for multiplication.
Once they do this, tell them to write an equal sign and solve the problem. For example, if you have a group of items with one item in the first row, two in the second row and three in the fourth row, you must use an addition sentence and add each of the rows together.
In contrast, if you have two items in each row and three items in each column, then you can use a multiplication sentence to express the complete equation. Create a Sentence From a Word Problem Word problems always seem to throw students off, but once students understand how to write a multiplication sentence, word problems should be easier for the students.
Provide a word problem, such as "Matt collected a bushel of apples. He has enough apples to place five apples per row six times. How many apples does Matt have? Hurry up and figure out the answer before he eats one.Multiplying & Dividing Fractions Interactive Notebook INB Unit 4th & 5th Grade I use enVision Math, so I created these lessons to coordinate with my book, although they could easily be used with other texts.
