Number Bonds Teach Multiplication and Division

Number Bonds = Higher Level Thinking
Lesson Link:  http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Multiplication-and-Division-Number-Bonds-BUNDLE-2s-9s


Easily teach multiplication and division at the same time by having students find the missing numbers on the number bonds.

Example: 9, 36, and a ?.
The 9 and the ? are parts and the 36 is the whole.
  • 9 times ? = 36
  • ? times 9 = 36
  • 36 divided by 9 = ?
  • 36 divided by ? = 9
THREE numbers  (9, 4, and 36) --- that's all you need to teach the multiplication and division number sentences above.

See how your thinking changes when you have to figure out the number on top. :-)
