  • A<
  • B=
  • C>

Q3:

Q4:

Compare the expressions. Pick the symbol that is missing.

  • A<
  • B>
  • C=

Q5:

How many squares are in the array with 5 rows of 3?

How many squares are in the array with 3 rows of 5?

What equation does this prove?

  • A5×5=3×3
  • B5×3=3×5
  • C5×5=5×3
  • D5×3=3×3

Q6:

This equation 3×6= describes 3 groups of 6. What number is missing?

Write an equation to describe 6 groups of 3.

  • A6×3=9
  • B6×3=21
  • C6×3=18
  • D6+3=9

Find the missing number in 3×6=×3.

Q7:

How many triangles are there in 4 groups of 3?

Compare this to the number of triangles in 3 groups of 4.

  • AThere are fewer triangles in 3 groups of 4.
  • BThere is the same number in 3 groups of 4.
  • CThere are more triangles in 3 groups of 4.

Q8:

Complete the following: 2×4=4×2=.

Q9:

Complete: 5×2=×5.

Q10:

If 8×3=24

and 3×8=24,

complete the following: 8×3=3×8=.

Q11:

Benjamin knows that when you multiply, you can change the order of the factors. So

Does this work when we divide?

  • AYes
  • BNo

Q12:

Madison is skip counting to solve 5×4.

How else could she skip count to find 5×4?

  • A2,4,6,8,10,12,14,20
  • B2,4,8,12,16,20
  • C5,10,15,20
  • D5,7,10,14,20
