Description:

In this lesson plan students explore how to use multiplication to find the number of combinations possible in various situations. They follow the Cyberchase kids through two short videos as they explore creating a matrix and a tree diagram to solve the number of combinations; looking for patterns across data and leading to the conclusion that the same solutions could have been found through multiplication (counting principle). The lesson plan includes two student worksheets, two assessment options, and an answer key (rtf).
