Carnival Math

Although carnival games are designated games of skill, winners are usually determined by chance. In this carnival-style game, skills in arithmetic are required just to play… so in the game of math education, everybody is a winner!

Grades covered: Pre through 6

Multiply one-digit whole numbers by multiples of 10 in the range 10?90 (e.g., 9 ? 80, 5 ? 60) using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.||Common Core Mathematics||Grade 3||Number And Operations In Base Ten||Use Place Value Understanding And Properties Of Operations To Perform Multi-Digit Arithmetic.4|||3.OA.5. Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.2 Examples: If 6 ? 4 = 24 is known, then 4 ? 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 ? 5 ? 2 can be found by 3 ? 5 = 15, then 15 ? 2 = 30, or by 5 ? 2 = 10, then 3 ? 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 ? 5 = 40 and 8 ? 2 = 16, one can find 8 ? 7 as 8 ? (5 + 2) = (8 ? 5) + (8 ? 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)||Common Core Mathematics||Grade 3||Operations And Algebraic Thinking||Understand Properties Of Multiplication And The Relationship Between Multiplication And Division|||Mathematical Practices: 1.
