Now with one magnetic side!
Provide a foundation for complex multiplication and division problems! Visual Area Modeler boards allow students to easily move from the concrete representation of a problem, to the pictorial, and then onto the standard algorithm of multiplication and division.

The *NEW* magnetic front side features two channels to hold the included base ten blocks to represent the factors of a multiplication problem. The non-magnetic back side is printed with a "factor t" for drawing representations of the problems.

Working alone or in small groups, students will use magnetic QuietShape® foam base ten blocks to create area models that are the length and width of a rectangle to represent the factors, and the area of the rectangle to represent the product. Using strategies based on place value, and the properties of operations, students are quickly able to determine products for multiplication, or quotients for division problems.

This set includes two, double-sided, dry-erase Visual Area Modeler boards (front side is magnetic!), 100 magnetic foam units, 50 magnetic foam rods, 10 magnetic foam flats, and a deck of 50 task cards, with 25 multiplication and 25 division problems. Each card shows the answer on back: either the area model answer, or using partial products, a mathematical explanation of how each partial product was derived. Boards measure 12" x 12". Cards measure 4" x 6".
