Our Introduction to Multiplication lesson plan teaches students about multiplication, including what it is and why it is useful in math. During this lesson, students are asked to read simple word problems, convert them into standard multiplication problems, and solve them. Students are also asked to practice multiplying single-digit numbers together in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand multiplication as repeated addition and use diagrams to solve for the product of two numbers.
