Exploring Multiplcation

Assessments1) Students prior knowledge of multiplication concepts will be assess through a pre-assessment worksheet.2) Students will be assessed formatively through the multiplication fact fluency and accuracy game. 3) Student's ability to correctly group mathematical sentences into the right property will be assessed through class activtities and completed flap books4) Students understanding in multiplying simple and complex arrays will be assessed through in-class worksheet, completed array pom-pom poster, and array quiz game.

ConclusionOverall, reviewing this unit lesson on multiplication with my students gave me the opportunity to test out my strengths and weaknesses when teaching. Moreover, I believe that this unit lesson provided great opportunities for my students in reviewing different multiplication concepts in fun and engaging ways.

Students develop an understanding of the meaning of multiplication through everyday activties and problems involving equal-sized groups, arrays, and area models. In the unit, Exploring Multiplication, students will review a few multiplication concepts. Through these mutiplcation strategies, students will gain a better understanding of the importance of multiplication concepts.

Students will demostrate their understading in reviewing multiplication facts through creating a personal multiplication chart and through a multiplcation fact fluency game.

Student will learn to use arrays to multiply small and large quantities. They will learn about simple and complex arrays and be able to define what characteristics the different arrays present. They will learn to come up with their own arrays and present them to their class as a quiz. They will also be required to recognize array questions made by their classmate and answer accurately.

Students will apply previous learned skills to review on the properties of multiplication. Students will use this knowledge to sort multiple math sentences into groups. Students will create a Properties of Multiplication flap book to use for future reference.At the end of this lesson, students will be able to recognize the properties of multiplication, sort mathematical sentence into correct properties and be able to apply them to future multiplication problems.

Through a combination of direct instruction, concept formation and learning cycles approach, The class and I will review on the different concepts of multiplication (such as skip counting, finding patterns, writing and drawing number sentences and the three properties of multiplcation).

Objectives

Teaching ReflectionI believe that hands on activities are the most effective and engaging teaching lessons. Most students are more successful at learning concepts when they get to experiment on their own. As a future teacher, it is important to give my students as much opportunity as I can to explore mathematical concepts through their understadning.
