After the children collected all of their photos, they were told to choose 3 of their best ones to analyze. In their analyzing, they had to identify the number of rows, columns and total. They also had to share their knowledge of the equal groupings and their sum. Then they had to represent their arrays with repeated addition problems and multiplication problems. Below is one groups work.
Today, the children continued to explore arrays by building and analyzing them. Here are some of the arrays that the Cool Cats built. Can you identify the number or rows and columns for each example? Are you able to tell me facts about groups? How about creating repeated addition problems that represent the arrays and multiplication facts. Go ahead and have a go!
