One way to help students learn multiplication and division is to set scaffolded IEP goals. IEP goals are Individualized Education Program goals that are designed to promote student learning in specific concepts. For multiplication and division, these goals might focus on helping students understand how to use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems. Progressions in these goals might start with simpler concepts, such as solving word problems with multiplication and division within 10, and then move on to more difficult concepts, such as solving word problems with multiplication and division within 100. This scaffolded approach can be particularly effective for students with special education needs, who may benefit from having a clear progression of goals to follow. By setting scaffolded IEP goals, educators can ensure that students have a clear path to follow as they learn multiplication and division. Learning Standard

3.OA.A.3

Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. Target IEP Goal

By (date), when given problems with multiplication and division, the student will use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem ,improving operations and algebraic thinking skills from 0/10 work samples out of ten consecutive trials to 8/10 work samples in ten consecutive trials.  IEP Goal Objectives
