This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 16, Unit 2, Grade 6. Divide students into small groups. On poster paper, each group is asked to determine whether one of the following products is odd or even: the product of two even numbers, the product of two odd numbers, or the product of an even number and an odd number. Encourage students to use previous knowledge about even and odd numbers, the connection between addition and multiplication, and visual methods (e.g., dots) in their proofs.
