I gave each child a doughnut. I asked them to think about the task; jot down their ideas and then cut the donut. Aligned with Common Core State Standards: 3.OA.1, Operations and Algebraic Thinking; 4.OA.1, 4.OA.2, Operations and Algebraic Thinking.

Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each.
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
