If you're teaching multiplication, use this lesson plan to review double digit multiplication. Students will summarize their knowledge of three different multiplication strategies as they make strategy tent cards. Then, students will play a partner dice game to solve multiplication problems.

Upon completion of the lesson, students will be able to:

- solve double digit multiplication problems.
- explain how to solve double digit multiplication problems using different methods.

2 hours

Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

- Paper
- Tape
- Dice
- Dry erase boards
- Dry erase markers
- Copies of lesson quiz (optional)

- Show the students a double digit multiplication problem and ask them how they might go about solving the problem.
- Play the video lesson Double Digit Multiplication Strategies and pause at 2:25.
- Review the traditional method with students by using it to solve a sample problem. Encourage students to walk you through the various steps to solve the problem.
- Continue the video lesson, pausing at 3:35.
- Review the box method with students by using it to solve a sample problem. Ask students to walk you through the various steps to solve the problem.
- Finish playing the video lesson.
- Review the partial product method with students by using it to solve a sample problem. Have the students walk you through the various steps to solve the problem.

- Give each student a piece of plain paper. Have them fold it into three equal sections to make a strategy tent card.
- On each section of the paper, ask students to explain how to use one of the three strategies to solve double digit multiplication problems. They could write down a mnemonic, work through a sample problem, or list written steps.
- When finished, have students tape the top of the paper to the bottom of the paper to form a three-sided free standing tent.
- Have students share their cards with each other in small groups. Tell them that these strategy cards can be used in the next activity as they master the different strategies.

- Divide the class into partners, and give each pair dry erase boards, dry erase markers, and dice.
- Have the partners take turns rolling the dice to create double digit multiplication problems to solve. For example, if a student rolled a 5, 6, 7, and 2, they could create the problem 56 x 72, 67 x 25, or any combination of those numbers.
- The first person will roll the dice and create a problem for their partner to solve on the dry erase board.
- When the problem is solved, the partners will check it together.
- Then, the partners will switch roles.
- If you have dice with numbers greater than 6, consider letting the students use these as well.

- At first, let the pairs choose strategy they'd like to use. Then challenge the pairs to use different strategies.
- Discuss the following questions with the class:
- Which method from the lesson did you like using to solve the problems?
- Which method was on the hardest to use?
- Would there ever be a situation where you would see one of the strategies not working?

- Check for understanding by having the students complete the lesson quiz, either online or with paper copies.
