## Multiplication With Arrays

Many students are SO excited to learn multiplication. Many ‘claim’ to know some facts and think this concept is a breeze! But … do your students really understand the meaning of multiplication? Can they represent the equation in a visual manner? This teaching presentation aims to help your students form a concrete understanding of how to represent a multiplication equation with an array.

With this teaching presentation, students will learn how to:

• Sort objects into rows and columns with an equal number in each.
• The definition of an array.
• Represent the same number with different arrays.
• Write the number sentence for a given array.

The presentation uses animations to help visualise arranging groups of objects into equal rows and columns and gives tips on identifying the corresponding multiplication fact.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your maths lessons.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:

### 🆘 Supporting Students

Assist students who need help understanding the concepts by providing them with manipulatives such as counters, centi-cubes, mini-erasers, etc. Students can then use the manipulatives to create the same arrays as featured in the presentation.

### ➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

Encourage students who need a bit of a challenge to create related division equations for each array
