## Progression of Multiplication

What is a progression that builds to a conceptual understanding of multiplication? What types of activities should teachers of students developing students basic numeracy do to build to multiplication? How can I build students conceptual understanding of multiplication (rather than just teaching the algorithm)? In this 6-minute video, Gfletchy demonstrates strategies that teachers can use to develop students’ conceptual understanding as a building block to fluency. The video itself is illustrated, and interesting to watch.
