Multiplying and Dividing by a Thousand
Skipping Your Way Through Multiplication and Division
We all know the trick of adding or removing a few zeros when multiplying or dividing by a thousand, but skip counting reinforces the idea that multiplication is just repeated addition. This workbook makes it easy by providing guidance from a hundred thousands board. Further, multiplying and dividing by a thousand familiarizes students with large numbers. The student multiplies or divides by a hundred in the Number Lake with the aid of a color-coded hundred thousands board and Egyptian finger counting. This encourages the student to draw on their skill of skip counting in thousands as a means to multiply or divide by a thousand.
