11. Find the product of two factors (up to four digits by a one-digit number and two two-digit numbers), using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations.

a. Illustrate and explain the product of two factors using equations, rectangular arrays, and area models.

Students will play a game in which they will use place value understanding and strategies to create and solve multi-digit multiplication problems that have the greatest product.
