2. Lesson Content

The process used to multiply whole numbers.
Use patterns to multiply by 10,100,100.
Use appropriate estimation skills.
The process used to multiply decimals. 


3. Goals And Expectations

1. The students will multiply whole numbers using a learned strategy.
2.The students will multiply decimal numbers using a learned strategy.
3.The children will use mental math to answer less complex problems. 


4. Objectives

1.Mentally compute products of whole numbers.
2.Use partial products and the standard algorithm to solve multiplication
problems.
3.Use partial products and the standard algorithm to multiply decimal
by decimal numbers. 


5. Materials and Aids

Four leveled sets of cubes related to the topics of study. 


6. Methods Used and Procedures

A. Introduction
1.Review key math concepts related to multiplication.
2.Complete examples on the board.



B. Development
1.Demonstrate how to use the cubes with a student as a partner.



C. Practice
1. Have the children practice with a partner.
2. Begin the cubing activity



D. Independent Practice
The children will be placed into groups and they will record the
problems on their workspace. A partner will check their work with
a calculator. If it is wrong they must correct the problem prior to
their next turn. 


E. Accommodations For Students
Each set of dice will have leveled questions that cover the lessons
from the unit of study. 


F. Checking for understanding
1.They will receive a worksheet to complete in order to show their
knowledge prior to leaving the room.



G. Closure
1. Assign the review for the chapter to reinforce the topics of
study.



7. Evaluation
