In mathematics, the term "product" refers to the result of multiplying two or more numbers or quantities together. When you multiply two or more numbers, the result is called the product.

If you multiply 5 and 3, the product is 15 (5 * 3 = 15).

To understand products in mathematics, it's important to grasp the concept of multiplication and how it relates to finding the product of two or more numbers. Here are some key points to remember:

- Product: The result of multiplying two or more numbers together.
- Multiplication: The operation of repeated addition. It involves adding a number to itself a certain number of times. For example, 3 x 4 can be thought of as adding 3 four times: 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12.
- Factors: The numbers being multiplied together. In the expression 3 x 4, 3 and 4 are the factors.
- Commutative Property: The product of two numbers is the same regardless of the order in which they are multiplied. For example, 3 x 4 is the same as 4 x 3.
- Associative Property: The product of three or more numbers is the same regardless of how the numbers are grouped. For example, (2 x 3) x 4 is the same as 2 x (3 x 4).

Understanding these concepts will help you work with products in mathematics and solve problems involving multiplication and finding the product of numbers.

Remember to practice multiplying different numbers and solving problems that involve finding the product. This will help reinforce your understanding of products in mathematics.

Grade 6 Curriculum Focal Points (NCTM)

Number and Operations: Developing an understanding of and fluency with multiplication and division of fractions and decimals

Students use the meanings of fractions, multiplication and division, and the inverse relationship between multiplication and division to make sense of procedures for multiplying and dividing fractions and explain why they work. They use the relationship between decimals and fractions, as well as the relationship between finite decimals and whole numbers (i.e., a finite decimal multiplied by an appropriate power of 10 is a whole number), to understand and explain the procedures for multiplying and dividing decimals. Students use common procedures to multiply and divide fractions and decimals efficiently and accurately. They multiply and divide fractions and decimals to solve problems, including multi-step problems and problems involving measurement.

Connections to the Grade 6 Focal Points (NCTM)

Number and Operations: Students' work in dividing fractions shows them that they can express the result of dividing two whole numbers as a fraction (viewed as parts of a whole). Students then extend their work in grade 5 with division of whole numbers to give mixed number and decimal solutions to division problems with whole numbers. They recognize that ratio tables not only derive from rows in the multiplication table but also connect with equivalent fractions. Students distinguish multiplicative comparisons from additive comparisons.
