Module 3
Multi-Digit Multiplication and Division

In this unit students will use their place value understanding as a visual to solve multiplication and division problems with multi-digits. They will begin with investigating the formulas for area and perimeter. From there, they will then begin multiplying single-digit numbers by multiples of 10,100, and 1,000.  Next, students will be multiplying multi-digit numbers times a single digit. After that, students will then move into division. Within division students should be able to create arrays and area models to solve problems with remainders. Next, they will then use these skills to begin dividing multi-digit by a single digit with remainders. After that, we will go back to multiplication and focus on multiplying two-digit by two-digit numbers.
