Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1–20, count out that many objects.
Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns; write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal addends.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.1
What is an array? An array is a set of objects organized into equal groups. In this movie, you’ll learn how arrays can help you count, multiply, and even divide. You’ll explore how to use arrays to add and learn to write and solve multiplication number sentences. How can you solve 3 x 2?
