1. Interpret and write equations for multiplicative comparisons.

This Google Slide Show activates student thinking about comparing quantities. The slides help students understand the wording for comparing quantities multiplicatively.

*This activity results from the ALEX Resource Development Summit.*

1. Interpret and write equations for multiplicative comparisons.

Students will use data from a table to make multiplicative comparison statements of the data. This activity allows multiple practice opportunities.

1. Interpret and write equations for multiplicative comparisons.

This activity is a way to assess students' understanding of multiplicative comparison. In this activity, students must draw a picture, write a multiplicative comparison statement, and write a multiplication equation.

11. Find the product of two factors (up to four digits by a one-digit number and two two-digit numbers), using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations.

a. Illustrate and explain the product of two factors using equations, rectangular arrays, and area models.

Module 3, Topic D gives students the opportunity to apply their new multiplication skills (4.NBT.5). In Lesson 12, students extend their work with multiplicative comparison from Topic A to solve real-world problems (4.OA.2). As shown on the next page, students use a combination of addition, subtraction, and multiplication to solve multi-step problems in Lesson 13 (4.OA.3).
