NYS Math Module 3 Grade 4 Lesson 7 Homework

1. Represent the following expressions with disks, regrouping as necessary, writing a matching expression, and recording the partial products vertically.
a. 3 × 24
b. 3 × 42
c. 4 × 34

2. Represent the following expressions with disks, regrouping as necessary. To the right, record the partial products vertically.

3. Cindy says she found a shortcut for doing multiplication problems. When she multiplies 3 × 24, she says, “3 × 4 is 12 ones, or 1 ten and 2 ones. Then there’s just 2 tens left in 24, so add it up and you get 3 tens and 2 ones.” Do you think Cindy’s shortcut works? Explain your thinking in words and justify your response using a model or partial products.
