# Access Point #: MAFS.4.OA.1.AP.1a

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

#### 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.
General Information
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.
