What dimensions did you use for this chart? I understand it is 10 x 10, I am wondering if each box is the size of a 10×10 centimeter cube size? Like the size of a flat if you are using base-ten blocks?

Arrays are useful ways to visually show multiplication concepts. 4 rows of 3 equals 12. 4×3=12. The little sheets of paper are graph paper that the students cut into individual arrays to represent all the different multiplication problems. Thanks for asking!

We just used bulletin board paper and drew a big grid from 1-10 on each side. The students then made mini-arrays for each multiplication problem 1×1 through 10×10 using graphing paper. They cut out their array and taped it to the chart out in the hallway.

It is a large Array Chart where I had students tape up all the different multiplication arrays from 1×1 to 10×10 to help visualize the multiplication they were learning.

Just saw this, and I really like the idea. Thanks for sharing!

This is fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

I thInk I’m actually going to try with my first graders but with addition instead. So cool!!

What are the kids writing on the piece of paper? Are those the answers? This looks cool! More instruction please

Oh never mind, I see now! They have done arrays! This rocks! I will be doing this next year! Thanks for amazing ideas!

There were about 4-6 inches each. Just big enough to fit the little arrays in each box.

Mr. Hart what is an array? What is eritten on the slips of paper

What’s the area of the array? Just wondering how large the squares are so I can replicate. Thanks!

The large array is 10×10. Each box represented a different multiplication problem.

looks Great , but how did you keep it from falling off the wall?

Just taped it up on the wall. 🙂

Can u explain me how can we do this?

What is this?

It is a large Array Chart where I had students tape up all the different multiplication arrays from 1×1 to 10×10 to help visualize the multiplication they were learning.

Was the array done independantly or in groups?

We did it as a whole class together. Different students were assigned different arrays to complete and hang on the chart.

Looks great! What grade is this? I would love to do this with my bilingual 4th grade class.

I did this activity with 3rd graders. You’re 4th graders will love it.

For 4×3, could they color 4 rows of 3 AND/OR 3 rows of 4? Does it matter?

4 rows of 3 is 4×3 and 3 rows of 4 is 3×4…

What are the different colors of paper in each of the blocks?

They are the actual arrays the students made. We made arrays from 1 row of 1 to 10 rows of 10.
