• Chart paper and markers for group activities

### Learning Objectives

• Students will understand the concept of multiplying by 10.
• Students will correctly complete multiplication sentences involving multiplying by 10.
• Students will solve multiplication problems involving the number 10.

### Introduction

Begin by asking students to think about what happens when they multiply a number by 10. Explain that multiplying by 10 is like adding a zero to the end of the number. Show a simple example on the board: "If I have 8 groups of 10 dots, how many dots do I have in total?" Write on the board: 8×10=80.

### Explicit Instruction/Teacher modeling

Explain that multiplying by 10 is a quick way to increase a number by tenfold. Use several examples to demonstrate this:

• 10×6=60
• 10×7=70
• 10×8=80

Show the visual representation of these problems using arrays and number lines. For example, show an array of 8 rows with 10 dots in each row to demonstrate 8×10. Then use a number line to count by tens up to 80.
