This lesson covers multiplication facts of 3, understanding the identity property of multiplication (product of any number and 1 is the number itself), zero property of multiplication (product of any number and 0 is zero), and applying the distributive property.
Skip counting is used as a strategy to help students identify multiplication facts. By skip counting by threes, students can easily determine the multiples of three.
This lesson utilizes skip counting to identify multiplication facts. It also uses arrays to visually represent the distributive property and a finger model to help students recall multiplication facts.
