Lesson 3. Unit 2. Grade 5 EngageNY

EngageNY4 min(s)

This Fluency Activity is a part of the Lesson 3, Unit 2, Grade 5. Review of multiplication decomposition with low numbers prepares students for decomposing multiplication sentences with bigger numbers in the upcoming lessons. Students could be encouraged to generate their own decomposition to be used in the distribution (e.g., for the first, possible decompositions of 9 include 2 and 7 or 3 and 6). However, this will increase the time needed for this fluency activity.
