Double Digit Multiplication!!!!

Today your kiddo was introduced to double digit multiplication. We are going to learn a couple of ways to calculate these types of problems. I wanted to be sure that you were aware of the methods introduced so that you can support your kiddo at home. We will learn about the standard/bow method next week. This week we are learning the box/partial product method. Below are images of the steps/notes that your kiddo will be using for both methods.


Here is a link that can help demonstrate and explain the connection between the box/partial products method and the bow/standard method:

Box/partial products method does a good job of keeping place value in double digit multiplication. This concept can be lost when calculating using the standard method. It is also less overwhelming and therefore seems easier to some kiddos. I do not care which method your child uses as long as it make sense to them.

Please feel free to ask questions if you need some clarification!

Thank you for all your support!
Mrs. Milot
