Ideas for home
- Practice basic multiplication facts in short bursts throughout the week. Basic multiplication facts is another name for times tables or multiplication tables.
- If your child is having trouble with the standard algorithm, ask them to solve the problem first by using the method they prefer. Then work with them step by step to connect the answer to the algorithm.
- Have your child collect different-sized boxes from around your home, such as shoe boxes, cereal boxes, and gift boxes. Have your child measure the dimensions of the boxes (length, width, and height) to the nearest inch and then calculate the volume.
- Ask your child to compare the volume of different boxes. Boxes that look very different can have similar volumes.
- Make up the volume of a box and ask your child to find some possible dimensions. For example, if the volume is 36 cubic units, the dimensions could be 3 × 3 × 4 or 2 × 2 × 9. See how many solutions your child can find.
