Using Repeated Addition to Illustrate Multiplication

Using Repeated Addition to Illustrate Multiplication

Resource Type
Developed By
National Center on Intensive Intervention

This video shows how manipulatives can be used to explain multiplicative problem structures to students who are just beginning to use multiplication strategies. Using an array of equal sets allows students to practice multiplication using strategies such as skip counting and repeated addition.  When students have many practice opportunities to solve multiplication problems with strategies such as arrays, they develop a solid conceptual understanding that multiplication represents groups of an equivalent number.
