5.4 Wrapping Up Multiplication and Division with MultiDigit Numbers
Unit Goals
 Students use the standard algorithm to multiply multidigit whole numbers. They divide whole numbers up to fourdigits by twodigits divisors using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
Section A Goals
 Multiply multidigit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Section B Goals
 Divide multidigit whole numbers using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and the relationship between multiplication and division.
Section C Goals
 Multiply and divide to solve realworld and mathematical problems involving area and volume.

Problem 15
Exploration
Jada remembers that the partial products algorithm can go from left to right or from right to left. She wonders if the standard algorithm can also go in either direction.
 Calculate \(418 \times 53\) using partial products right to left and left to right.
 Calculate \(418 \times 53\) with the standard algorithm. What happens if you try to make the calculation from left to right?
