Multiplicative thinking has many facets which include strategies, representations and contexts. This package covers this topic comprehensively, even though many of the components can be used separately when the teacher sees a need for a particular aspect that needs attention. The package consists of the following modules:

Strategy lessons –  covering flexible thinking, doubles, number splitting, using 10s facts, landmark numbers and factors
Mental routines
Problematized situations
Word problems
Number talk
Calculator challenges

The material is also set within the context of an inquiry that will enable the teacher to show where the students started from and where they have reached in their exploration of multiplicative thinking.

Building Multiplicative Strategies – Complete supports the teaching of the ACM Number and Place Value strands for Year 3: ACMNA056 and ACMNA057, Year 4: ACMNA075   and ACMNA076  and Year 5: ACMNA100.
