Use objects to model multiplication involving up to five groups with up to five objects in each and write equations to represent the models.

#### Essential Understandings

Concrete:

• Arrange objects into equal sets to reflect a given multiplication statement (e.g. 3 × 1 as 3 groups of 1).
Representation:
• Identify an arrangement of objects that matches a given multiplication statement.
• Write/select the equation that represents a given model.

 Number: MAFS.4.OA.1.AP.1a Category: Access Points Cluster: Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems. (Major Cluster) :  Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

#### Related Standards

 Name Description MAFS.4.OA.1.1: Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
