Multiplication Patterns with Decimals Fold-Up and More
Students discover patterns make learning fun!

This packet contains a tri-fold-up which would fit well in a math journal or as a stand alone resource. The fold-up explains the rule for multiplying decimals by powers of 10. It also shows two examples of completed multiplication pattern problems.

Note that the cover is intentionally upside down, this should make for easier printing. I do, however, recommend that you run a test copy to make sure everything folds up correctly. To fold a trifold-up, run the cover upside down and the inside right side up. With the inside facing you, bring the bottom up to the upper horizontal line and fold. Finally, bring the top down to the fold you just made and fold. The end result should look like a ‘horizontal’ brochure.

Also, included is a half-sheet handout. This handout contains the same information as the trifold-out, just in a different format. I find the half-sheet works well as a reference sheet. Many students like to take it home and share the skill with their parents.

You will also find a two page worksheet. The worksheets will help the student practice the skill. The front side has the problems grouped as ‘pattern equations’. The back side has random problems which can have the pattern applied to. I broke the backside up into two groups of 16 problems. My thought was that a teacher may want to have the students complete the back in two separate settings.

An answer key is also provided.
