- 3.OA.B.5Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.2 Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)

Unit: Using Multiplication to Find Area

3rd Grade Math »
Unit: Using Multiplication to Find Area

Big Idea:

#### Students need to practice deconstructing arrays with manipulatives in order to conceptualize the distributive property. This 3 day lesson takes the children through increasingly sophisticated activities to explore the "why" and "how" of this property.
