Objective

Students will be able to fluently multiply with 7's.

Big Idea

Lucky Sevens!

Concept

15 minutes

Concept wise, I have little to say about multiplying by 7.  But, if students are progressing in leveled program I have created, there are only three facts that they have to master for the 7's, two of which are turn-around facts. 

For this level students are left with 7 x 7, 7 x 12, and 12 x 7.

I have included two videos for the 7.  The first one is a video of a cool trick with a tic-tac-toe board for 7's.  The second one is of course from School House Rock.

 

 

Practice

30 minutes

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

Timed Test

15 minutes

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.
