Area is the space within a closed shape. An area model uses a rectangle divided into rows and columns to demonstrate multiplication. The distributive property tells us that a multiplication fact can be broken into the sum of two other multiplication facts. Tiling a rectangle means covering the shape with smaller pieces so that there are no gaps or overlaps.

In this module, you will learn and practice the following skills:

• Apply the distributive property
• Solve for area
• Create an area model
