1. How to Perform Multiplication: Steps & Examples
Multiplication, one of the basic operations of math, is important not just in elementary math but also in higher math. Watch this video lesson to learn how you can multiply with ease.
2. How to Multiply One-Digit Numbers
This lesson discusses the process of multiplying one-digit numbers. It shows you how to find the correct answer using skip counting,, a multiplication table, or flashcards.
3. Using Mental Math for Multiplication
Do you want to impress your friends and family with your amazing brain? You can when you learn a really easy way to multiply single digits by multiples of 10 and 100 in this lesson.
4. Learning Multiplication Facts to 10 Using Commutative Property
Maybe you've heard that learning to multiply requires a really good memory. But actually, once you know some multiplication facts, you can easily solve others. In this lesson, you'll learn how the commutative property is a shortcut to make learning multiplication easier.
5. Learning Multiplication Facts to 10 Using Rectangular Array
In this video lesson, you will learn what a rectangular array looks like when it is used to show multiplication. You will also learn how to create your own multiplication array to practice multiplication.
6. Learning Multiplication Facts to 10 Using Skip Counting
Multiplication facts might not be your favorite thing to learn in math class, but they are super important to know! In this lesson, we will use skip counting as a method for learning your multiplication facts zero through 10.
7. Learning Multiplication Facts to 10 Using Doubling
In this lesson, you will learn a strategy called doubling to help multiply facts to ten. You will learn how to use known facts and double the product. Test your knowledge with a quiz at the end of the lesson!
8. Learning Multiplication Facts to 10 Using Finger Tricks
When it comes to multiplication, finger tricks are very useful tools, and they're fun! This trick is for multiplication tables of 6, 7, 8, and 9. When you need to find an answer quickly, finger tricks can save the day.
9. Multiplying a Two-Digit Number by a One-Digit Number
In this lesson, you will review what multiplication is and learn two methods for multiplying a two-digit number by a one-digit number: the area model and the traditional method. You can use both to practice your multiplication skills!
10. How to Multiply Three or More Numbers
We use multiplication all the time in life, but have you ever wondered how to multiply more than two numbers together quickly? In this lesson, you will learn how to multiply three or more numbers together.
11. How to Multiply Numbers Ending in Zeroes
In this lesson, you will learn how to multiply numbers that end in zeroes. You will see that multiplying numbers that end with zeroes is an easy process that requires some counting.
12. How to Complete the Multiplication Sentence
Multiplication is a skill that can help you save time when you're adding large or small groups of numbers together. This lesson will focus on completing multiplication number sentences when different parts are missing.
13. Finding the Missing Factor
In this lesson, you'll learn how to find missing factors in multiplication problems using tools you may already have seen such as multiplication charts, factor trees, area models, and division (with a calculator).
14. Working with Multiplication Input-Output Tables
In this lesson, we will find patterns in input-output tables, and use those patterns to find missing data in the tables. We will use the four operations: multiplication, division, addition and subtraction for these tables.
15. The Relationship Between Multiplication & Division
Did you know that you use multiplication and division when you are sharing food, such as cookies? In this lesson, you will learn about how multiplication and division go together.
