Let's go over some of the multiplication and division strategies and problems we've looked at. These include:
using arrays and area models
partitioning numbers by place value
using a vertical algorithm
We also looked at using a vertical algorithm to solve multiplication or division , for larger numbers. This strategy is useful if we need to trade, or regroup.
Multiply 250 by 80.
Find the value of 856 \div 8.
Find the value of 3244 \div 4.
Arrays and the area models are great to solve multiplication or division problems when there will be no remainder. If we are not sure, we can use the vertical algorithm strategy.
selects and applies appropriate strategies for multiplication and division, and applies the order of operations to calculations involving more than one operation
