Reviewer Comments:

This is a well-organized lesson that teaches students about how to find multiples of a number by using multiplication. The real life connection given in the word problem part of the practice problems is particularly good. Students are provided with a set of tiered problems and an answer key so that they can self-regulate their understanding of the concept of multiples. Teachers can find all parts of this lesson in PDF form as well as in Microsoft Word or Notebook formats. There are no specific directions for the "Hands On" part of this lesson included. Otherwise, the tips, hand-outs, and lesson plan are all provided.
