Required Knowledge: Students should understand what the math term "double" means and know the doubles facts from 2+2 through 12+12. Students would benefit from also knowing an addend is half the sum in a doubles fact (4 + 4 = 8, so 4 is half of 8). They should also have an understanding of multiplication as "adding equal groups" and be able to compute 2-digit addition/ doubling such at 14 + 14 or 32 + 32. Content: Students will be shown how to calculate their 2's, 4's and 8's times tables...
Students will learn many of their multiplication facts by doubling. Understanding this strategy, and being able to reason quantitatively using the "double" and "half" of many single and double-digit numbers, will allow students to calculate their multiplication facts after the modeling or concrete phase of learning. They will have a numerically sound multiplication method to check their work and apply to higher level math concepts.
This is not a sensitive topic.
Students will be given OPTIONAL practice work in between sessions. These assignments will be a reflection of what was learned in the previous class and will be no more than 1 page.
1. Paper, pencil (or dry erase board and marker). 2. Printouts of practice activities for class (these will be sent at least 24 hours in advance through the Outschool Class Learner Page).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The learner will be assessed through informal observations, questions, and work done during each session.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
