    Multiply & Conquer: Students decompose 2-digit numbers, model area representations using the distributive property and partial product arrays, and align paper-and-pencil calculations with the arrays. The lessons provide conceptual understanding of what occurs in a 2-digit multiplication problem. Partial product models serve as transitions to understanding the standard multiplication algorithm.

    Use the Rubber Duck for measurement and comparison.

    Isometric Drawing Tool: Use this interactive tool to create dynamic drawings on isometric dot paper. Draw figures using edges, faces, or cubes. You can shift, rotate, color, decompose, and view in 2‑D or 3‑D.

    Cubes: Fill a box with cubes, rows of cubes, or layers of cubes. The number of unit cubes needed to fill the entire box is known as the volume of the box. Can you determine a rule for finding the volume of a box if you know its width, depth, and height?

    Cube Nets: A net is a two-dimensional figure that can be folded into a three-dimensional object.

    Patch Tool: Quilters and other designers sometimes start by producing square patches with a pattern on them. These square patches are then repeated and connected to produce a larger pattern.

    Symmetry...great idea to combine science, math and art!

    Measuring with pumpkins and apples.
