The fourth graders at the Bais Yaakov Academy of Queens are learning more than just essential math skills. They are learning how much fun learning can be!
The girls eagerly embarked on the challenge of multiplying two two-digit numbers. They learned to understand the process of multiplication by breaking up each number and adding the partial products to find the final answer. They also learned how to multiply with regrouping.
To practice this important skill, the girls engaged in multiple exciting activities. They applied multiplication to real life scenarios as they “planned a party” and calculated the cost of their choices of food and prizes. They spun the spinner and rolled the die to create problems to solve. Additionally, they decorated the school yard with jumbo multiplication problems using colorful sidewalk chalk. It was so much fun to “show off” their newfound knowledge and skill with the rest of the school!
Lessons always come alive at the Bais Yaakov of Queens. Each day is an adventure of learning and fun!
