This unique track allows for students to expand their understanding of the area model for single-digit multiplication into multi-digit multiplication. Using Base Ten Blocks, factors fit snugly in the track to meet at 90°, allowing for further development of the area model for multiplication. It allows students to use properties of operations to aid in the development of multiplication strategies such as Partial Products. Students build conceptual understanding leading to procedural fluency.
