In a previous lesson, students used the standard algorithm to multiply up to five-digit numbers by one-digit numbers. They connected the standard algorithm to a different algorithm that uses partial products. In this lesson, students find products of a three-digit number and a two-digit number when composing is not required. The numbers in this lesson do not require composing so that students can make sense of where to record the second partial when using the standard algorithm to multiply a three-digit number by a two-digit number. Students will work with products of a two-digit number and a three-digit number when composing is required in the next lesson.
- Use the standard algorithm to multiply up to three-digit numbers and two-digit numbers, without composing new units.
- Let’s use the standard algorithm to multiply two-digit numbers and three-digit numbers.
