2. Repeated Addition • A specified number of items is repeatedly arranged (grouped) a given number of times. One factor describes the number of items in each group; the other factor describes the number of groups.

3. + + 8 8 8 Example of Repeated Addition There are six crayons in a box. How many crayons are there in three boxes?

4. Rate • A value or distance is associated with a unit. The product is the total value or distance associated with all the units

5. 1 2 3 4 5 6 Rate Example • Jeremy walks three miles an hour. How many miles does he walk in six hours? 0 3 6 9 12 15 18

6. Scalar(Comparison) • Some quantity (a specified size or number of items) occurs a given number of times (the scalar multiple). The product is a multiple of the original quantity.

7. Example of Scalar • Marcus has six marbles. His brother has three times as many marbles. How many marbles does Marcus’s brother have?

8. Combination • Two disjoint sets exist and the size of each set is known. Each of the objects in one set is paired with each of the objects in the other set.
