Multiplicative Reasoning for Grades 3-5
Resources for Developing Multiplication Concepts & Skills
Participants attending all 3 of the following days will receive a $300 stipend!
Day 1: Multiplicative Reasoning in Grades 3-5
Focuses on how children develop understanding of multiplication concepts that leads to strong mathematical reasoning and fluency. In the morning, we will work across grades 3-5 to understand the multiplication trajectory while engaging in rich math activities that can be used across grade levels to build fluency. In the afternoon, we will work in grade-specific groups to target multiplication standards by grade level. Participants will leave the workshop with activities and games that build conceptual and procedural understanding of multiplication.

Day 3: Making Sense of Student’s Multiplicative Thinking through Student Work
The Making Sense of Student Work (MSSW) protocol developed by WestEd is a powerful process for understanding student thinking and planning instruction to target specific learning needs of students. The process is an ideal tool for strengthening teacher collaboration and student achievement in mathematics. We will use student work from our classrooms to engage in the MSSW process and consider the specific next steps that will support children’s multiplicative reasoning.
