Multiplying can be a difficult thing to grasp for some students. By showing them with pictures, number lines, area models, jumps on a number line, the student will feel confident and grasp what multiplying entails. They will learn that multiplying is like adding but quicker. By looking at pictorial models students will form a multiplication problem. This resource is like a bicycle with training wheels and once the students understand the concept, you will see them riding on their own. :) Includes 4 posters that come in color and black and white for your classroom.
