Grade 3, Module 9

Core Focus
Working with the sixes multiplication and division facts, as well as facts involving
3 or 7, and square numbers
Exploring the associative property of multiplication
Solving multiplication word problems
Using the order of operations
Numbers in Base-10
By this time in the school year, students are able to remember many multiplication
facts automatically. When students do not yet automatically recall facts, these facts
can often be gured out from known facts using number sense and reasoning
practiced within the strategies.
In this module, students work with the multiplication facts involving 6, by building up
from the more familiar x5 facts. E.g. we can gure out 6 7 =? by thinking 5 7 is 35
so 6 7 is 35 + 7, which is 42.
An array that has 5 rows with 3 columns in each row equals 15.
When one row is uncovered or folded down (see below) it creates 6 rows of 3.
The folded-down array shows or 15 + 3 = 18, so 6 3 = 18. Making these connections
builds number sense and reasoning.


6 rows of 3 =

5 rows of 3 =

5 3 is 15
6 3 = 18 and 3 6 = 18

Another way to think about 6 facts is to break an array apart into a familiar 5
array and a 1 array, mulitply the parts, and then add them back together.

Reinforcing the Sixes Multiplication Facts

Ideas for Home

Encourage your child to
explain how knowing the
5 fact makes the 6 facts
easier to solve. I know that
5 7 is 35, and 35 + 7 is 42,
so 6 7 is 42.
Create arrays with pennies to
illustrate 5 __ and then add
one row to illustrate 6 __ .
Associative property of
multiplication allows three or
more factors to be multiplied
in any order. E.g. 6 x 3 x 4 can
thought of as 18 x 4 or 6 x 12 or
24 x 3. 6 x 12, may be the most
ecient combination for mental
math because it is the same as
60 + 12.
This array models the build-up
strategy for x6 facts:

These are the

Order of operations states that

if there is one type of operation
in a sentence, work left to
right. If more than one type of
operation is present, work left
to right in this order:

If there is one type of operation in

a sentence, work left to right.
If there is more than one type of

how you would gure out the total cost for each purchase.
Then write the total.

b. Buy two B and one D

Step Up

Practice order of operations

by telling stories that match
equations involving more than
one operation. E.g. 4 + 2 3 = 10
could match this story:
I bought a $4 notebook
and 2 books for $3 each.
Also this story: My friend has
4 dogs and 2 of the dogs had
3 puppies each. What other
story could match?

In Lesson 10, students discuss everyday situations that involve more than one operation.
Working left to right, what is the total cost?
Using the order of multiple operations,
what total do you get?

Practice the facts and make

connections to the division
facts. Encourage your child to
think multiplication. E.g. for
42 6, think 6 ? = 42.


an issu

Imagine you want to buy one issue of A and three issues of B .

What steps would you use to gure
out the total cost?

Practice the strategies for all

of the multiplication facts. Use
doubles (2, 4, 8), use ten
(5), build up (6), build down
(9), and the last facts (3 7,
7 3, 7 7, 3 3).
If your child knows their
facts by memory, ask them
to prove it periodically by
explaining a strategy.

Look at this picture.
