In this unit students
• understand and use the distributive property;
• solve more complex multiplication problems in context.
This is a culminating unit on multiplication where students put everything they have learned so far together to solve real world and mathematical problems related to multiplication and division.The distributive property plays a prominent role as one of the most important properties or operations. For example, it is the distributive property and place-value structure that underpin the standard algorithms. Students continue their work towards fluency with multiplication and division within 100.
