This 220 page volume contains 40 multi-aged lessons designed to promote deep understanding of multiplicative ideas. Rich open-ended tasks framed around the big math ideas, literature connections and real-world problems, written practice and engaging purposeful games, as well as assessment tasks are featured in this resource for grades 3 to 8 teachers.
