top of page  # Interpret Products Of Whole Numbers As The Total Number Of Objects 3.OA.A.1 | IEP Goal

When students are learning to interpret products of whole numbers, it is important to set an IEP goal and use differentiated materials that are designed to promote grade level mastery. One method for teaching this is to provide opportunities for students to practice identifying the total number of objects in a given scenario. For example, if there are ten dogs and each dog has two children, the student would need to interpret the product as twenty. By providing opportunities for students to interpret products of whole numbers in a variety of contexts, they will be better prepared to apply this knowledge in real-world situations. Learning Standard

3.OA.A.1

Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7. Target IEP Goal

By (date), when given a multiplication sentence, the student will draw a multiplication model for a given equation, improving multiplication understanding skills from 0/10 work samples out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 work samples in ten consecutive trials.  IEP Goal Objectives

1

###### Understand multiplication: Count equal groups

By (date), when given a multiplication model, the student will state the number of groups and objects per group, improving multiplication understanding skills from 0/10 work samples out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 work samples in ten consecutive trials.

2

###### Understand multiplication: Write multiplication sentences (missing group)

By (date), when given a multiplication model and partial multiplication sentence (missing group), the student will complete the multiplication sentence, improving multiplication understanding skills from 0/10 work samples out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 work samples in ten consecutive trials.

3

###### Understand multiplication: Identify multiplication expressions for arrays (2 multiple choice)

By (date), when given a multiplication array model (2 multiple choice options), the student will match an expression to the array, improving multiplication understanding skills from 0/10 work samples out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 work samples in ten consecutive trials.

4

###### Understand multiplication: Make arrays to model multiplication

By (date), when given a blank array model, the student will shade an array to model a multiplication sentence, improving multiplication understanding skills from 0/10 work samples out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 work samples in ten consecutive trials.
