Multiplication Meatballs

Recipe by

Yum times ten! Figure that these Multiplication Meatballs (Recipe by Jancakes– will be delicious! But, first what’s an array? 

You guessed it! An array is an easy way to learn your times tables. You can use just a few meatballs to make your multiplication model, or lots to make a bigger product. Basically, an array is a rectangle of meatballs. For example, a 5 by 6 rectangular arrangement of meatballs is how many meatballs? (Hint: rhymes with dirty…) Or, in the case of the photo here, a 4 by 3 array gives you… That’s right, 12 meatballs since 4 x 3 = 12.

Hooray for arrays!
