Multiplication Unit contains almost 50 pages of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism. This unit on multiplication addresses the process of multiplication in a visual and simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material. There are many opportunities for students to engage in repeated information on the process of multiplication. This repetition encourages a true understanding of multiplication and builds stronger number sense. Finally, many of the multiplication activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.

***************I just added 32 google slides to this unit. They are the same as the printed worksheets. There is one set that is completely differentiated with color. There is also a movie version of the PowerPoint.

See the Preview for a detailed look at the contents.


Multiplication Unit Includes

• 17 page multiplication book that introduces the concept of multiplication as repeated addition (also in movie format)

• 5-page multiplication worksheet set for students to practice identifying what is and what is not repeated addition (also in digital format)

• 20 pages multiplication worksheet set with color-coding to practice multiplication through repeated addition (10 pages also in digital format)


Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Regardless of the material, if we can ask students good questions it will push them to think more deeply than before.

As always please take a moment to leave feedback or post any questions you may have. 

I am currently developing more units, and any feedback I get helps me make improvements in the future. Plus, it just means a lot to me.

Please consider checking out my math unit on division as a good companion to this material:
