Math Monday

With multiplication being a major part of our third grade classrooms, math tasks that help our students expand their understanding of the concept are so important.  Our math coaches have helped out this past year as we started incorporating Common Core into our classrooms.  One of those methods was introducing us to the Math Task.  Our third graders took the Constructive Response Assessment.  The CRA gives students task to solve and explain.  I am going to try to share some of the amazing task I have come across that I use in my classroom.  Today's task is a multiplication task about frogs.  Hope you can use it in your classrooms.
