Our Multiplication Comparison Word Problems lesson plan teaches students strategies for solving multiplicative comparison problems. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to complete an activity in which they use given equations and drawings to create multiplication word problems which they then solve. Students are also asked to look at a chart and answer true/false questions about it, such as “The extra-large pkg of detergent is four times the size of the small pkg of detergent”.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve multiplicative comparison problems. write multiplication and division equations for those problems, and use models.
