Encourage your child to identify keywords in the word problem that indicate multiplication, create visual models or drawings to represent the situation, and write a corresponding multiplication expression. Remind them to check their work for accuracy.

Common keywords include 'times,' 'product,' 'each,' 'groups of,' 'in all,' 'total,' and 'multiplied by.' These words often signal that a multiplication operation is required.

Visual models provide a concrete representation of the problem, making it easier for students to understand the situation and visualize the multiplication process. They can use arrays, equal groups, or number lines to represent the problem and determine the solution.
