Description: This deck of 11 Drag-and-Drop Multiplication Bead Board Multiples of 5 Boom Cards is perfect for practicing setting up and solving problems using the Multiplication Bead Board. The instructions are available in audio at the click of the mouse. Set Up of this Boom Cards Deck: Cards 1 - 4 are a tutorial on how to use the multiplication bead board and read the answer. (AUDIO optional) Cards 5 - 11 each feature 1 multiplication fact problem of multiples of 5. From the beginning of the deck, the problems are in order: 5 x 1, 5 x 2, 5 x 3… all the way to 5 x 10. On each problem card, the child will type the multiplicand in the ‘window’ then drag and drop the red disc above the multiplier, just like when using the real material. Because dragging and dropping many beads can be tedious for students, each problem has the previous problem’s beads already in their places on the board. For example, on the card 5 x 3, the beads from 5 x 2 will already be in place. The student only needs to bring over 5 more beads to find the answer. Below each column, the child will type in the multiples of 5, as they have been revealed in the prior problems, reinforcing skip counting. This also helps the child stay on track when counting the beads. After reading the answer to the multiplication problem, the child types it into a fill in the blank box, and clicks ‘Submit’. If any of the parts of the problem are incorrect, the student can try those parts again until correct.
