Lesson objective: Multiply and divide using patterns, properties of operations and inverse relationship of multiplication and division

This lesson helps to build fluency with multiplication and division. Patterns and properties are used here because "it supports students as they gain fluency with the operations of multiplication and division. This work develops students' understanding that they can use strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division or properties of operations to multiply and divide.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 4. (Model with mathematics) as they solve word problems using  arrays, equal groupings, number lines, and equal shares.

Key vocabulary:

  • Commutative Property
  • Labels
  • Multiples
  • Patterns
  • Table
