This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 8, Unit 5, Grade 6. Students deepen and reinforce the ideas developed in previous activities: using area diagrams to find partial products, relating these partial products to the numbers in the algorithm, and using multiplication of whole numbers to find the product of decimals. By calculating products of decimals using vertical calculations of whole numbers, students extend their understanding of multiplication to include multiplication of any pair of decimals.
