Students will be able to fluently multiply with 11's.

Good Eleven!

11 as a factor is both easy and difficult. There is obviously a pattern with 11's; 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99, 110...

But, once we get up to 11 x 11 out pattern somewhat fails us and it is more difficult to recall 11 x 11 and 11 x 12. So basically, there are two facts that students are going to have to put some memorization into.

A trick I use with my students for 11 x 11 is that I explain the 2 eleven's take the 2 for a walk. Hence, the 2 in the middle with a 1 on each side.

I have included a short video for multiplying by 11. This is meant to be more of a review and practice instead of a concept introduction.

**Spinner Tool**

Students are given one of the spinners to fill out as a reference tool. The tool will be primarily used during the current level of the multiplication program but should be kept as a reference going forward to higher levels.

**Flashcards**

There is a set of flashcards provided for the current level. Each set of flashcards include the facts with their turn-around facts. It is important that the students are comfortable with the commutative property of multiplication.

**Games for Practice**

**Jumbo Tic-Tac-Toe**

- Each player chooses one factor (2-12)
- Record the factor in the top of second column
- Toss 2 dice and find the sum
- Multiply the sum by the factor
- Record the product next to the sum in the table
- If the sum has already been filled, lose a turn
- First player to complete the table wins

**Line It Up**

- Toss 2 dice and find the sum
- Multiply the sum by 2
- Place a counter on the product
- If the product has a counter on it, lose a turn
- First player to build a full row or column wins

**Face-Off**

- Each player chooses one factor (2-12)
- Record the factor in the top of second column
- Toss 2 dice and find the sum
- Multiply the sum by the factor
- Record the product next to the sum in the table
- If the sum has already been filled, lose a turn
- First player to complete the table wins

There are two timed tests associated with this new factor. The first timed test is designed to be a one minute test of 40 problems and includes only multiplication facts with the new factor. The second timed test is designed to be a two minute test of 60 problems and includes all multiplication facts learned in the leveled program thus far.
