Description:

We will being our year with a unit on Place Value from Engage New York, "A Story of Units". The picture below is a link to the Engage New York website and to the module we are working on this week.

This week we are reviewing how to multiply multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm and/or partial product.  We will start with multiplying 4-digit numbers by a single digit, and then move to multiplying 2-digit by 2-digit numbers.

Some students still do not know all of their multiplication facts.  Please continue to practice these, so their fluency and understanding will increase.

How do I multiply using the standard algorithm?  This is the way that most people multiply.

How do I multiply using partial products?  This is similar to the standard algorithm, but it breaks the factors into expanded form to multiply them, and then adds them back together to get the answer.  For example:

28 x 36 would look like this:

28    and    28     then you add the products      840

x 30             x 6      back together -->               +  168

840            168                                                   1008
