Basic Multiplication Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to interpret products of whole numbers. The Basic Multiplication learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 3.OA.A.1 as written in the common core national math standards.

Repeated addition as an entrance point to the standard. Standard reflects the understanding of the concept of multiplication as a more efficient repeated addition. This does not cover the operation of multiplication.
Clearly connect the word times with the symbol x. Split quantities into equal groups (whole number quotients only). Quantities split into equal groups will not have a quantity remaining.
Connect the concept that 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 +2 =10 is the same as 5 twos =10 (numbers can vary). Connect the concept that 5 twos = 10 is the same as 5 x 2 = 10 (numbers can vary). There must be equal groups to multiply, unequal groups cannot be multiplied. Interpret equal groups, arrays, or other models as representations of a multiplicative sentence. Interpret models as multiplicative expressions
