Hi 5B Parents,
Your child will be coming home with a Multiplication Placemat assessment they did independently, today. I am sending it home as a review for the math test on Monday. As you can see, the question posed in the middle should result in the same answer for each method. In hindsight, the base ten question was too difficult to draw and I will not expect them to draw for their upcoming test, but it did give a good indication of their understanding for this particular method. In the future, I’ll provide graph paper or leave it out entirely.
