Math Workshop - Multiplication and Division Math Unit. This is a guided math - math workshop unit plan to teach the multiplication strategies (arrays, equal grouping, number lines, and repeated addition) and the division strategies (repeated subtraction, skip counting, and equal sharing).
In this product you will find vocabulary cards that can be used for a word wall, anchor charts, and detailed mini-lessons along with the resources necessary to carry them out (games, worksheets, anchor charts, and other printables). For each lesson I have provided activities for remediation and enrichment so that you can differentiate your lessons and meet the needs of all your students. Additionally some lessons provide choices as to how you would like to implement them.
It is at your discretion as to how you work through this unit. You can pick and choose lessons as needed or parts of lessons. You can also decide to teach the remediation or enrichment piece whole class as a regular lesson. These are merely a suggestion of how I would pace in my classroom. Further, it is not necessary to follow the “scripted” portion of my lesson plans, but rather that is there to give you an idea of the workshop language used. You are welcome to modify it to your classroom needs. Lastly, you may wish to modify the timing of the workshop or implement centers during independent time. You know your students best and should focus on their needs. You do not need to teach the workshop model to use these lesson plans and they are easily adaptable. You may add, delete, or modify lessons based on your needs.
This unit begins by discussing what multiplication is, along with students learning the strategies (arrays, equal groups, number line/skip counting, and repeated addition) expressed in Common Core. Then students explore the relationship between multiplication and division, study the strategies (repeated subtraction, equal sharing, and working backwards), and focuses on what remainders are. Then students apply these strategies learned along with their multiplication and division skills to practice story problems, input/output tables, and problems with missing numbers.
The following concepts are covered in individual lessons:
*What does multiplication mean? (strategy: repeated addition)
*How do I multiply? (Strategy: equal groups)
*How do I multiply? (Strategy: arrays)
*How do I multiply? (Strategy: number lines/skip counting)
*What is the relationship between multiplication and division?
*What does division mean? (Strategy: equal sharing)
*How do I divide? (Strategy: repeated subtraction)
*How do I divide? (Remainders)
*How do I multiply and divide with missing numbers?
*How do I multiply and divide story problems? (2 days)
*How do I use an input and output table?
*3 reviews (one for multiplying, one for division, one overall)
*Independent time activities
*Word Wall Vocabulary Cards
With 15 complete lesson plans in this unit, that's a dollar a day for everything you need- worksheets, centers, scripted lessons, vocabulary, and more! It's definitely a worth it in value!
