– Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.


-Recognize that humans need resources found on Earth and that these are either renewable or nonrenewable.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

– Use manipulatives or drawings of rectangular arrays and/or array models to solve and explain multi-digit multiplication problems

– Apply an understanding of rectangular arrays and area models to connect to the partial products strategy.

– Define resources as anything from the environment that meets our needs and wants.

– Provide examples of renewable resources (e.g., water, wind, solar, trees).

– Provide examples of nonrenewable resources (rocks, minerals, soil, and fossil fuels such as coal, oil,
natural gas).
