**How to multiply whole numbers by 10, 100 and 1000?**

### Multiplying Using Arrays

We can multiply by breaking up the multiplier. We can use an array to show this.

Example, 3 × 12 can be viewed as 3 × 10 and 3 × 2.

**How to multiply 2-digit by 2-digit numbers by breaking apart their arrays into easily manageable multipliers and finding partial products?**

Example:

13 × 12

**How to use the Area Array Model to simplify the multi-digit multiplication process?**

Example:

54 × 18

### Multiplying using Expanded Form

Solve the following multiplication problem by estimating first, then

modeling the problem using base ten blocks and record using

expanded form, then multiply to show the number of hundreds first or

by showing the ones place first.

Example:

You made 22 oatmeal cookies from one batch of mix. You make 3

batches of cookies. How many cookies did you make?

Step 1:Estimate First

3 × 22 is about 3 × 20 = 60 cookies.

I predict that I will make a little

more than 60 cookies.

Step 2: Use base ten blocks to represent your problem.

**Step 3:** Multiply showing the number of hundreds first or the number

of ones first

**Step 4:** Compare the final product in step 3 with your estimate in step 1.

Multiplying using Expanded Form

Multiplying using place value and expanded form with larger numbers to get products.
