# MULTIPLICATION

In Super Math World, multiplication is achieved by using the operator hoops - walk forwards through the hoop to multiply, and backwards to divide. There are other toys which perform multiplication as well, which are detailed below.

## STUDENTS WILL

• Work with numbers 1-500 in multiple puzzles
• Become more fluent and flexible when considering multiple numbers
• Learn strategies to combine two numbers to 10, 20, 50, and 120

## BEFORE YOU BEGIN

• This lesson will build basic fluency with the number line.
• Ask students what a number line is. Is it always the same number line?
• Can you skip values on the number line? (yes)
• Are there values in between the numbers you choose on the number line? (yes)
• No previous experience with number lines is needed.

## AFTER CLASS DISCUSSION

• Who can tell me something about the number line?
• Are all number lines the same, or do they look different? How are some different?
• Did you put numbers in order? What numbers did you use?
• Can negative numbers exist on the number line? What happens when they do?
