  • Use area models, partial products, & the standard algorithm to multiply multi-digit numbers
  • Use estimation to determine the placement of the decimal
  • Use concrete models, area models, partial products, and the standard algorithm for decimal multiplication

Available in English and Spanish


TeachTransform’s 5th Grade Multiplication develops the process of multi-digit multiplication through use of pictorial models, scaffolded algorithms, error analysis, and patterning.  

Silly characters and contexts keep students interested and develop problem solving grit. For example, students model multiplication with Zappo and Eduardo the Centipede. And they use estimation to place the decimal (not counting places).

5th Grade Multiplication includes activities for the whole class, small groups, centers, intervention, and guided math that build the academic language of the operations.

Each activity includes:

  • CCSS
  • Setting Up for Instruction
  • How-To Guide with full teacher directions including questions
  • Thought Extender Questions to help students get ‘unstuck’ and focus on the math concepts
  • Answer Key
  • Content explanations to deepen teacher understanding of fraction concepts
  • Instruction extras to support implementation of instructional strategies

Tutoring & Intervention

5th Grade Multiplication activities can be used for Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 instruction in 5th grade. 4th Grade Multiplication can be used to catch 5th graders up and fill in gaps without loss of rigor or time. For example, for 5th graders struggling to understand the process of multi-digit multiplication, use Welcome to Elf Country or Rocky Road. For students who need more practice, use The Robot Assistant or Lucy Dynamic’s Invention.

Instructional Alignment from Grades 3–5

Not only is the content aligned among the grades, but the instructional strategies are too. For students who are “growing up” with TeachTransform’s instructional materials, you can expect them, with a little prompting, to give an answer that includes a why, to use sentences to explain their thinking, to question each other in small groups. This lightens the instructional and cognitive load in each grade and leads to mastery.
