Target students

These activities are intended for students who use additive strategies to solve multiplication and division problems. They may have some simple multiplication fact knowledge and be able to skip count in twos, fives, and tens.

The following diagnostic questions indicate students’ ability to use known additive strategies or multiplication facts to solve division problems. In doing so, students apply the commutative property, the distributive property, and the associative property of multiplication to the inverse operation, division. (show diagnostic questions)
