Reflection: Multiply by 5 - Section 1: How is the 5's Pattern Helpful?


I think that it is helpful and, with the Math Practices, working with students on ways to determine if their work and responses make sense is critical.  Here, in this lesson, you may want to listen for students to talk about making sure all of their 5's multiplications end in 0 or 5.  They need to make sense of the 0 being a ten, or two 5's counts.  

I was really pleased to see the students look over their work in their books to see if the products had a 0 or 5 in the one's place.
