Multiplying 23 × 19 Using Area Model

This video shows how to use an area model to solve a multi-digit multiplication problem. An area model can serve as a visual representation of the partial products multiplication strategy. Using an area model may be a good option for students who have not yet gained a conceptual understanding of how regrouping works or how the partial products strategy works. The area model method can serve as a visual guide for students until they are ready to use traditional algorithms.
