multiple:  a number that can be divided by another number without a remainder
Students must memorize the multiples for numbers 3 through 9.  Multiples are used for multiplication, division, simplifying fractions, finding common denominators.....Students cannot use multiplication charts for iReading and State assessments.  They can, however, use scratch paper and jot down the multiples.  This avoids careless computation errors and allows them to focus on sequencing the steps of the math problem they are solving.
Examples of multiples:
3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 18, 30
8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80
