Partial Product Finder allows multiplication combinations to be represented as a rectangle, or array, with dimensions that match the combination. The sides of the rectangle can then be divided into parts to reveal partial products that make up the total product. This helps students develop the flexibility and conceptual understanding required to build fluency with basic facts and strategies for multiplication of larger numbers.
