Using Doubles and Building on Doubles: a Mental Math Subtraction Strategy
 
03:36
(http://bit.ly/um4Dll) Click on the preceding link to access the "using doubles and building on doubles" resources that are mentioned in this video. Using Doubles and Building on Doubles is a mental math strategy that introduces students to the concept that the addition doubles and near doubles can be used for subtraction as well. Once students have developed automaticity with the addition doubles, the subtraction doubles and near doubles will generally come quickly. This video outlines the basic ideas behind using doubles and building on doubles.

A Suggested Order of Teaching the Basic Multiplication Facts
 
06:55
Multiplication facts can be difficult to learn, and difficult to teach. Luckily, there are strategies that we can use to help us teach the multiplication facts more effectively so that every student can be successful. One thing that we can do is use mental math strategies that make the calculations easier to understand.  Although memorization is still a goal, we want our students to have effective, efficient strategies to fall back on. Read more about effective strategies for multiplication HERE. Another thing that we can do is teach the facts in a strategic order. When I first started teaching multiplication, I taught the facts in regular numerical order – the 1’s, then the 2’s, then the 3’s, etc. This is a mistake! Instead, we want to teach the easiest facts first, and leave the hard ones til last. Why? Simple! Because when we teach like this, we teach students the majority of the basic facts before things even begin to get challenging! This is very motivating for your students, as they can see their progress and how rapidly they are learning their facts. Looking for more information for teaching multiplication?

The Box/Window Method for Multi-Digit Multiplication
 
09:48
The box/window method is an excellent strategy for multi-digit multiplication. This strategy places an emphasis on number sense understanding, as students use the expanded form of each factor. This helps students to understand what the digits in each factor REALLY mean. This approach is also referred to as the “area model” by some teachers.

Partial Products Multiplication Strategy
 
07:12
This is a how-to video for the partial products method for multiplication. Partial products is a fantastic strategy to teach as students are learning to do multi-digit multiplication. What makes it so fantastic? Well this strategy is rooted in number sense understanding. Students use place value concepts to multiply the numbers, making it a strategy that actually enhances number sense, rather than relying on a series of memorized steps. Partial products is a great follow-up to the Box/Window Method for multiplication, which you can also see more of on my YouTube channel. For more information, support, and resources for the partial products multiplication strategy, please see my blog post on Shelley Gray Teaching here - http://bit.ly/2qBYAkk For more multi-digit multiplication strategies, please check out my free webinar here: http://bit.ly/2t3DgGq

Lattice Multiplication: a method for multi-digit multiplication
 
11:44
This is a how-to video for lattice multiplication. Lattice multiplication is an alternative to long multiplication that uses a grid to organize the numbers. Lattice multiplication does not utilize number sense in the same way that other strategies, such as partial products or the area model, do. This is not a beginning multi-digit multiplication strategy. Instead, you might use this for students who already possess high levels of number sense understanding, and are ready for more of a challenge. For more information, support, and resources for the lattice multiplication strategy, please see my blog post on Shelley Gray Teaching here - http://bit.ly/2q4d7Bd Alternatively, register for my FREE webinar on multi-digit multiplication strategies here: http://bit.ly/2t3DgGq
