# Represent As Addition

## Worksheet Description

The worksheet is designed to teach the multiplication of mixed numbers with whole numbers through the concept of repeated addition, a fundamental approach to understanding multiplication. It provides eight problems where students are asked to multiply a mixed number by a whole number. The first problem is completely solved as an example, showing how to express multiplication as a series of additions. The worksheet is structured to encourage students to apply this example method to solve the remaining seven problems.

The worksheet is teaching students an alternative method to perform multiplication of mixed numbers, which is to conceptualize it as repeated addition. This method can help students understand the concept of multiplication more concretely, as it builds on the idea that multiplying by a whole number is the same as adding that number to itself multiple times. The worksheet also introduces the concept of breaking down mixed numbers into their fractional components to simplify the repeated addition process. By completing this worksheet, students practice this technique and develop a foundational understanding that can be applied to other areas of mathematics involving multiplication and addition.
