 Multiplication and division goals

Multiplication facts:

• 3rd grade standard: Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.C.7
• 3rd grade goal: _______________ will fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division as demonstrated by solving 44 mixed multiplication fact (0-9s) problems in four minutes and measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.C.7
• This goal can be modified a million ways like adding, “given a multiplication chart,” taking away the timed element or changing the as demonstrated part to “as demonstrated by completing a multiplication chart.”
• Where to find the standards: Operations and algebraic thinking

Multi-digit by one digit multiplication:

• 4th grade standard: Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.B.5
• 4th grade goal: Given 5 problems and a multiplication chart, ____________ will multiply whole numbers of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.B.5
• If you think a kid doesn’t need the multiplication chart, take it out. However, the Common Core tests let upper grade students use charts on their state tests so I recommend teaching them how to use the charts!
• Where to find the standards:  Numbers and operations in base ten

Multi-digit by two digit multiplication:

• 5th grade standard: Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm CCSS.Math.Content.5.NBT.B.5
• 5th grade goal: Given 5 multi-digit multiplication problems, ________ will multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observations.
• Where to find the standards:  Numbers and operations in base ten

Long division:

• 4th grade standard: Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.B.6
• 4th grade goal: Given a multiplication chart and five problems, ___________ will find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.B.6
• 5th grade standard: Find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors CCSS.Math.Content.5.NBT.B.6
• 5th grade goal: Given 5 problems and a multiplication chart, _________ will find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors with 80% accuracy as measured by teacher records and observations CCSS.Math.Content.5.NBT.B.6
• Please note I modified the 5th grade standard– two digit divisors is overkill. If our kids can do one digit then they have the idea down and we can work on something more important.
