Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 x 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Students always focus on how much more someone else has gotten, In this lesson students will compose verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations to help expand their reasoning skills.
Students are often confused when trying to relate multiplicative problems to real life situations. In this lesson, students will be given examples where they will apply multiplication problems.
