Lesson objective: Find multiples by skip-counting 

This lesson helps to build fluency with finding multiples of whole numbers. Skip-counting is used here because it highlights all of the multiples of a factor with a strategy students have used previously in Grade 3. This work develops students' understanding that a whole number is a multiple of its factors.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 7 (look for and make use of structure) as they begin to notice the pattern of multiples and the relationship between factors and multiples.

Key vocabulary:

  • factors
  • multiples
  • skip-counting
