Adams, Patricia, Ed.
This volume is the twenty-seventh in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by third-grade teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of four groups of lessons. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. This unit reviews concepts related to multiplication which were introduced in earlier units, then expands these concepts to include multiplication by zero, the use of placeholders in multiplicative problems, multiplication of more than two factors, and the use of the vertical algorithm. Work with partitioning of arrays, using Cartesian products, and solving word problems is included. (SD)
