multiplying two 2-digit numbers

Hello, 4th-grade colleagues!

I am a first-grade teacher with a daughter in fourth grade. Due to her math benchmark scores, it was decided to bump her up to math class with the fifth graders. They are reviewing multiplying two 2-digit numbers, and because my daughter was never instructed in this, she is struggling a bit. I have shown her the traditional column method. I have also shown her how to multiply the ones and the tens separately and add them together (ie 46 x 24 is the same as 46 x 20 + 46 x 4). I also showed her a Khan Academy video. Do any of you have other visual tricks or video that might help her to catch on quickly? Thanks!

This goes along with multiplying the tens and ones separately, a little more broken down, and with a visual.

Have you shown her the open array method?
In the example you have above, you would draw a rectangle and label the top 46 and the side 24. You would break the 46 apart by saying 40 + 6. I draw a line through the rectangle at the plus sign. I break apart the 24 by saying 20 + 4. And draw a line through the array at the plus sign. There should now be four pieces to your array. I then multiply all of the parts of the array (40 x 20) + (6 x 20) + (40 x 4) + (4 x 6). When you add them, you will get the correct answer.
Here is a video from you tube so you can see what I mean a little better.

Hope this helps!

Try the turtlehead method. It has really helped my 4th graders.

What method do they use when instructing the other fourth graders? I would find the way that you / her teacher think works for her and stick with that way so that she doesn't get confused ... good luck!
