Multiplication facts are a very important part of your child's success in math class and in the real world. Help your third grader build a solid multiplication foundation by regularly practicing at home.

## An Overview of Third Grade Multiplication

In third grade, your child will be developing his or her multiplication skills base. Your child will be learning how to interpret the products of two whole numbers. As an example, for the problem 4 x 3, your child would need to visualize four groups of three or three groups of four. Multiplying a 1-digit number by a multiple of ten is another skill your child will need to be able to perform.

Your child should be able to identify a missing number in a multiplication equation, as well as to multiply fluently within 100. To be adequately prepared for fourth grade, your child will also need to memorize each of the products of two 1-digit numbers.

### Multiplication Practice Problems

11. There were 34 people who attended the 2:00 showing of the high school play. Each person paid \$2.00 at the door. How much money was made at the 2:00 showing of the play?

To solve this word problem, your child will need to multiply 34 x \$2.00 = \$68.00.

12. The entire third grade class is having a bake sale to raise money for their school. There are 60 third grade students and each student agreed to bring two desserts for the bake sale. How many desserts will the third graders have at the bake sale?

Your child should multiply 60 x 2 = 120, which shows there should be 120 desserts at the bake sale.

13. Susannah invited 16 girls to her birthday slumber party. Each of the girls brought three bathing suits with them for the pool. How many bathing suits were there altogether?

To determine the total number of bathing suits the girls had at the slumber party your child would need to multiply 16 x 3 = 48.

14. At the Fourth of July family fishing trip, there were 22 people in attendance. Each of the 22 family members caught seven fish. How many total fish were there?

To figure the total number of fish your child would need to multiply 22 x 7 = 154.
