Using Partial Products to Apply the Distributive Property

Partial products is a math strategy that helps 5th grade students decompose a multiplication problem into smaller, more manageable parts. Using area models, students can break down the problem into two separate parts: the product of each factor and the sum of the two products. By using partial products, students can apply the distributive property to solve the multiplication problem.
