This week the students have been exploring various strategies for multiplying 2 digit numbers by a 1 digit number. To illustrate our multiplication problems we took this time to explore the concept of symbolism in art . Students were encouraged to use symbols to represent their numbers, and colors to represent place value. Using the concept of a monochromatic color scheme while using warm or cool colors, students created works of art that show their ability to multiply and their creativity.
Can you tell what math problem is being represented by the cool colors of this monochromatic color scheme? If you guessed 36×4 you are correct! Students also illustrated with a different shape how they carried over a number to another place value.
