Videos and songs to help Grade 3 students learn to interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5  7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5  7.

Common Core: 3.OA.1

### Suggested Learning Target
