Practice Strategies




PHASE 1: Initial Acquisition of Skill
Teach Skill with Authentic Context
Description: A problem context of shopping and buying items is used.
Build Meaningful Student Connections
Purpose: to help students make meaningful connections between what they have experienced with shopping and spending money and the skill of multiplying two digit by one digit numbers with regrouping.
Learning Objective 1: Use concrete objects to solve two digits by one digit multiplication problems with regrouping.
Materials:
Teacher 
 3 groups of Baseball cards
Description:
1) L ink to students’ prior knowledge of using multiplication to figure out problems.
For Example:
How many of you like to shop? When we shop we need to decide what we want to buy. We also need to decide how many we need or want to buy. Suppose you went to a grocery store with your mom and she told you that you could get 3 packs of Baseball cards. (Show packs of cards). Each pack had 15 cards. If you get 3 packs of 15 cards, how many cards will you have all together? Hmm. – That sounds like a multiplication problem to me. We have 3 packs of cards that have 15 cards each.
2) I dentify the skill students will learn.
For Example:
We’ve been working on multiplication. We have worked on multiplying tens (show example of abstract problem with corresponding concrete and representational display) and we have worked on multiplying two digits by one digit numbers like this (show example of abstract problem with corresponding concrete and representational display). You have done so well solving these problems that today we are going to start working on some tougher multiplication problems. When we do these problems, we will need to make sure that we pay close attention and regroup when we need to. Each of these problems will involve regrouping. To help us start solving problems like this we are going to use our base ten blocks and our place value mats.
3) P rovide rationale/meaning for solving two digit by one digit multiplication problems with regrouping.
For Example:
Knowing how to do problems like this will help us when we need to multiply larger numbers. It will help you when you shop to decide how many of each thing you want to get and how many you have all together.

Identify number/factors in problem
We have been working on multiplication problems involving regrouping. This time, I am going to work a problem and I want you to help me with part of it. If I went shopping and bought 6 packs of cards and each pack had 12 cards in it, I wonder how many cards I would have in all? I need to figure out a couple of things. The first thing I need to do is see which number stands for how many groups I have. What do you think? How many groups do I have? You are right, I have 6 packs of cards, so I have 6 groups. Now that is my number of groups, but I need another number, I need to know how many items I have in each group. What do you think is that number? Right, 12, because I have 12 cards in each pack. So I have how many packs? And how many cards in each pack?
On the place value mat, show the number of groups
I am going to use yarn to make the number of groups on my place value mat. How many groups should I make? Right 6. I am going put down 6 pieces of yarn across my place value mat.
On place value mat, show the number of items/group using base ten blocks and ten sticks.
Now I need to show how many cards are in each pack. There are 12 cards in each pack. I need to see how many ones are in the number 12. Show me how many ones are in 12. Right, there are 2 ones. How many tens are in 12? Right again, there is one ten. I can show 12 with 2 blocks and 1 ten stick. Well, we know that we have 12 cards in each pack,. What should I put in each group here on my place value mat? Right, I am going to put 12 in each group. ___ and ____, how do I make 12? You are right; we can show 12 with 2 blocks and 1 ten stick. I am going to put 2 blocks and 1 ten stick here in this group, and in this group, …. There I have made 12 in each group on my place value mat.
Count the number of blocks in the ones column of the place value mat.
I have made 6 groups of 12. I want to see how many I have all together. Where should I start counting? Right, in the ones column. I will start counting here. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. Now I have 10 blocks in the ones column. I think I need to do something. What should I do? Right, I need to make groups of 10.
Trade groups of ten for ten sticks and place the ten sticks in the ten column of the place value mat.
I need to take this group of ten blocks from the ones column and trade it in for a ten stick. Should I move my ten stick out of the ones column? Yes, I need to put my ten stick at the top of my tens column like this.
Count blocks left in ones column
Now I need to count my blocks in the ones column. Can I make any more groups of 10? No, I can’t. I have 2 blocks left in my ones column.
Count ten sticks in the tens column
I’ve counted my ones, now what should I do? Right, I need to count my tens. I have 1,2,3,4,5,6 sticks in my tens column (point to sticks) plus one more that I move over (point to stick at top of tens column). How many total ten sticks do I have? Right 7.
Say the number that is represented on the place value mat.
How many tens do I have? Seven tens are what? Right 70. Plus 2 ones (point to ones) makes 71, and 72. I have 72 blocks in all.
Repeat the multiplication problem, saying the answer that is shown by the concrete materials on the place value mat.
Now I know the answer to my problem. If I buy 6 packs of cards and each pack has 12 cards in it, how many cards will I have all together? Right 72 cards. Six times 12 is 72.
b. Maintain a high level of teacher direction/support for another example if students demonstrate misunderstanding/nonunderstanding; move to a medium level of teacher direction/support if students respond appropriately to the selected questions/prompts.
2.) Scaffold Using a Medium Level of Teacher Direction/Support
a. Choose several more places in the problemsolving sequence to invite student responses. Have these choices in mind before you begin scaffolding instruction.
Identify number/factors in problem
You are doing a great job figuring out these problems. This time, I ‘m going to ask for even more of your help. Let’s say that we have 3 bags of suckers and each bag has 14 suckers in it. We want to find out how many suckers we have all together.. The first thing we need to do is see which number stands for the number of groups. What do you think? How many groups do we have? Why do you think that? You are right, we have 3 bags,so we will have 3 groups. Now that is our number of groups, but we need to know something else. We need to know how many items we have in each group. What do you think is that number? Right, 14, because I have 14 suckers in each package. So I have how many packs? And how many cards in each pack?
On the place value mat, show the number of groups
What should I do first on my place value mat? Right, I need to use yarn to make the number of groups on my place value mat. How many groups should I make? Right 3. Why 3? Because we have 3 bags of suckers. I am going put down 3 pieces of yarn across my place value mat.
On place value mat, show the number of items/group using base ten blocks and ten sticks.
Now that we’ve shown our groups, what should we do next? You are right, we need to show how many suckers are in each bag. There are 14 suckers in each bag. We need to see how many ones are in the number 14. Show me how many ones are in 14. Right, there are 4 ones. How many tens are in 14? Right again, there is one ten. ___ and ____, would you please come show me 14 using the ten blocks and ten sticks? We can show 14 with 4 blocks and one ten stick. Now we need to show how many items are in each group on our place value mat. _____ show me what we are going to put in the first group. Is he right boys and girls? Great! ______, show me what we are going to put in our second group. How about it, did she do it correctly? We are on a roll. ____, what should we put in our third group? Right, we are going to put 4 one blocks and one ten stick to show that we have 14 in this group also. ____, There, we have made 14 in each group on the place value mat.
Count the number of blocks in the ones column of the place value mat.
We have made 3 groups of 14, and we want to see how many we have all together. _______, where should we start counting? Right, in the ones column. ____ and ______, please count the ones for us. They counted 12. Is there anything they need to do? Right, they need to trade a group of 10.
Trade groups of ten for ten sticks and place the ten sticks in the ten column of the place value mat.
_____ and _______, show us what to do with this group of 10 in the ones column. Great, they took the ten ones and traded it for a ten stick. Where should that ten stick go? Right, at the top of the tens column.
Count blocks left in ones column
____ and ____, how many blocks do we have left in the ones column?
Count ten sticks in the tens column
_____, what should we do next? Right, we count our ten sticks. How many ten sticks do we have? How did you get that number? Right, you counted the number of ten sticks we have in our tens column (1,2,3) and then added one more that we put at the top when we traded. So 3 tens plus 1 ten is 4 tens.
Say the number that is represented on the place value mat.
______ and _______, can you tell us what number we have shown on our place value mat? Boys and girls, they said we have 42. How many tens do we have? And 4 tens are what? Right 40. Plus 2 ones (point to ones) makes 41, and 42.
Repeat the multiplication problem, saying the answer that is shown by the concrete materials on the place value mat.
Boys and girls, what is the answer to our problem? 14 x 3 is 42 suckers.
b. Maintain a medium level of teacher direction/support for another example if students demonstrate misunderstanding/nonunderstanding; move to a low level of teacher direction/support if students respond appropriately to the selected questions/prompts.
3) Scaffold Using a Low Level of Teacher Direction/Support
a. When students demonstrate increased competence, do not model the process. Ask students questions and encourage them to provide all responses. Direct students to replicate the process at their desks as you work together.
Identify number/factors in problem
Let’s try another problem. This time, I want you to work at your desks using the base ten blocks and place value mats. I’ll work one up here while you work it at your desks. The fourth graders are going to have an ice cream sundae party. We have 3 boxes of plastic spoons and each box holds 15 spoons. We need to see how many spoons we have all together. How many groups do we have? Right, 3. What is the other number we will be working with? Right, 15 because there are 15 spoons in each box.
On the place value mat, show the number of groups
What should I do first on my place value mat? Right, I need to use yarn to make the number of groups on my place value mat. How many groups should I make? Right 3. Why 3?
On place value mat, show the number of items/group using base ten blocks and ten sticks.
Now that you each have 3 groups on your mat, what should you do next? You are right, we need to show the number of spoons. On your place value mat, show me the number of spoons in each box. What number did you show in each group on your place value mat? ____, and _____, could you please come show us on my place value mat.
Count the number of blocks in the ones column of the place value mat.
What should we do next? Right, we need to count. ______, where should we start counting? Right, in the ones column. How many ones do you count? Do you need to do anything with these ones?
Trade groups of ten for ten sticks and place the ten sticks in the ten column of the place value mat.
Show me what to do with the ones in the ones column. _____ , please tell me what to do on my place value mat. Okay, I take ten ones and I trade them in for a ten stick. Show me where should that ten stick go.
Count blocks left in ones column
Tell me how many blocks you have left in the ones column?
Count ten sticks in the tens column
What should we do next? How did you get that number? _____ , please come show me what to do on my mat.
Say the number that is represented on the place value mat.
What number do you have on our place value mat? Tell me what number I have. I have ____ tens, which makes _____, plus ____ ones, so I have _____.
Repeat the multiplication problem, saying the answer that is shown by the concrete materials on the place value mat.
Boys and girls, what is the answer to our problem?
b. When you are confident students understand, ask individual students to direct the problem solving process or have the class direct you: Students ask questions and you and the students respond/perform the skill.
