A match-up activity to assist students in understanding multiplication word problems.
Use this activity when working on early multiplication skills.
Cut the puzzle pieces and adhere to thick cardboard. Students must match each word problem with either a multiplication number sentence, a repeated addition number sentence, or an array. The images on the array puzzle pieces are non-descript – in each instance they are asterisks.
As there are 30 puzzle pieces, this activity could be used as a whole class problem-solving activity, with each student finding their match-up partner.
