Lattice VS Standard (3x2) Multiplication

We will be moving on from multiplication, but today we had a final review.  We multiplied 3 digits by 2 digits.  Again, the kids had the option of using the lattice or standard multiplication process.  They were also asked to estimate before solving the problem in order to determine if their answers were reasonable.

I think they have their chosen process down... so we will move to division! (duh, duh, duh - think ominous music)

Mrs. Lamb showed me an app for Lattice Multiplication (there is a cost of $3.99).
