3.OA.D.9

Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.

Environment: Urban
 
Big Idea:

Video games often dole out points in groups of 25, 50 and 100 because they are easy numbers to multiply. Practice with patterns of 5 and 10 apply directly to understanding patterns with 50 and 100.
