Check-As-You-Go 2×2 Multiplication Word Problems


SKU: 4096883 Categories: ,


Your students will build confidence and independence with 2-digit x 2-digit Multiplication with these task cards! This resource allows you to have peace of mind that students are practicing multiplication correctly while also supporting students while they are working towards mastery.

There are 20 word problem cards. Each problem also has 3 key cards, labeled Step 1, Step 2 and Step 3, so that students can check their work at each natural checkpoint in the traditional multiplication algorithm.

When students work through an entire problem (or worse yet, an entire page of problems) before being able to check their work, small mistakes compound into big problems. Students can quickly feel defeated when they have to erase all of the work that was done after a mistake early in the problem. Students who practice incorrectly must spend more time unlearning the wrong way to learn the correct way. Practice makes permanent, so let’s make sure students are practicing correctly.
