I'm using this video demonstrating how to solve a multiplication problem using partial products as a model for when I create my own. I think having a video like this available on my blog for parents or students when they get stuck on homework, or don't understand why we use this method would be very helpful.

This is a catchy song reminding students to decompose numbers in order to solve those unknown facts such as 7x8.
Great visuals and he uses common language.

This video, uses arrays to demonstrate the connection between multiplication and division. The visuals are clear, and could be seen easily if shown in the classroom.
A simple multiplication practise site where learners can choose from 6 difficulty levels and answer all the questions as quickly as they can. Players answer the questions using changing buttons, which means no typing is needed, making it idea to use on interactive whiteboards. Because it is designed using html the site also works on most tablets and smart phones.

The figure below shows a rectangle with width 3 and height y. The product 3y represents the area of the 3-by-y rectangle. Change the value of y by dragging the red point up and down the vertical axis. Note that as the point is dragged, the area of the rectangle changes simultaneously.
This is a great exploration for students to begin making connections between whole number multiplication and decimal multiplication. One modification I would make is to have students make a partition (on grid paper) to show the partial products so I could connect the figure to a symbolic algorithm for multiplication and the distributive property. For example, if it was 1.2 x 3, the partial products might be (1x3) + (.2 x 3).
