Before You Begin This Unit... 
Unit at a Glance 

The work of this unit builds on the work of units 1 and 3. In unit one students worked to solidify fluency that started in grade 3 unit 5. Before beginning this unit you will want to use data collected in units 1 and 3 to identify and support students who are not meeting 3 grade expectations for fluency. These students will struggle within this unit because this unit assumes students have strategies for determining the products for the facts that they don’t know automatically. Read the NCCCS to familiarize yourself with the expectations for each standard that is related to multiplication.
