Our Relate Addition and Multiplication lesson plan introduces students to the concept of using repeated addition to demonstrate multiplication. The lesson provides several illustrated examples showing how to use this process to solve multiplication problems. Students are asked to complete an interactive activity in which they use candy to model given addition or multiplication sentences. Students are also asked to write their own word problems and complete practice problems to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to relate addition and multiplication through the concept of repeated addition.
