Skip Counting with Arrays
00:00:05.000 --> 00:00:19.750
In this video, we will learn how to make arrays with up to five rows or columns and use skip counting and addition to find the total number of objects in an array.
00:00:21.780 --> 00:00:26.660
An arrangement of objects or pictures in rows or columns is called an array.
00:00:28.470 --> 00:00:32.300
We could group these soldiers into two rows.
00:00:33.590 --> 00:00:37.290
Each of these rows contains five soldiers.
00:00:38.350 --> 00:00:44.570
To find the total number of soldiers in this array, we could add together the two rows of five.
00:00:45.270 --> 00:00:48.850
We know that five plus five equals 10.
00:00:50.390 --> 00:00:53.930
So, we could say two rows of five is 10.
00:00:55.490 --> 00:01:01.620
An array is a group of objects grouped together in either rows or columns.
00:01:02.850 --> 00:01:09.300
This array has five columns, and each column contains two soldiers.
00:01:10.400 --> 00:01:17.910
We could find the total number of soldiers by adding together our five groups or five columns of two.
00:01:19.100 --> 00:01:25.830
In other words, we would need to add two plus two plus two plus two plus two.
00:01:27.380 --> 00:01:29.380
Two plus two is four.
00:01:30.260 --> 00:01:32.210
Four plus two is six.
00:01:33.590 --> 00:01:35.100
Six plus two is eight.
00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:40.310
And eight plus two is 10.
00:01:41.880 --> 00:01:47.540
Another way we can find the total number of soldiers in this array is to skip count by two.
00:01:48.960 --> 00:02:01.970
Two, four, six, eight, 10.
00:02:03.270 --> 00:02:12.190
Let’s try some example questions to help us practice skip counting and adding to find the total number of objects in an array.
00:02:14.430 --> 00:02:18.790
An array can be used to model equal groups of objects.
00:02:19.650 --> 00:02:22.660
Which of the following is not an array?
00:02:24.050 --> 00:02:28.230
We’re shown five different groups of objects.
00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:37.330
One of these groups is not an array, which means all the other groups are arrays.
00:02:38.850 --> 00:02:42.050
Which of these groups is not an array?
00:02:43.480 --> 00:02:51.050
An array is when objects are grouped together in equal rows, or columns.
00:02:51.920 --> 00:02:53.250
This is an array.
00:02:54.280 --> 00:03:00.430
This array shows three columns, and each column contains three dots.
00:03:01.720 --> 00:03:03.270
This is an array.
00:03:04.310 --> 00:03:13.610
We can group the dots in the second picture into three rows of two, so we know this picture is also an array.
00:03:14.650 --> 00:03:18.900
This picture shows one row of four dots.
00:03:19.980 --> 00:03:21.010
It’s an array.
00:03:22.300 --> 00:03:26.800
This picture shows three rows, but the rows are not equal.
00:03:27.990 --> 00:03:37.660
The first row contains four dots, but the second row only contains three, and the third row contains four dots.
00:03:38.330 --> 00:03:42.340
If the rows are not equal, this is not an array.
00:03:44.180 --> 00:03:47.250
So, this is the model which is not an array.
00:03:49.400 --> 00:03:51.370
The cupcakes are in an array.
00:03:52.400 --> 00:03:53.920
How many rows are there?
00:03:55.310 --> 00:03:57.420
How many cupcakes are in each row?
00:03:58.770 --> 00:04:01.360
How many cupcakes are in the array?
00:04:02.850 --> 00:04:05.500
We’re shown an array of cupcakes.
00:04:06.550 --> 00:04:08.560
How many rows are there in the array?
00:04:10.030 --> 00:04:13.770
There’s one row, two rows.
00:04:15.030 --> 00:04:18.940
Now, we need to work out how many cupcakes there are in each row.
00:04:20.280 --> 00:04:25.250
One, two, three.
00:04:26.430 --> 00:04:29.480
How many cupcakes are there altogether in the array?
00:04:31.580 --> 00:04:36.900
To find the total number of cupcakes, we could add together the two rows of three.
00:04:37.860 --> 00:04:39.900
What is three plus three?
00:04:41.160 --> 00:04:42.760
The answer is six.
00:04:43.810 --> 00:04:48.760
Another way we could find the answer is to skip count in threes.
00:04:49.960 --> 00:04:52.160
One three is three.
00:04:53.320 --> 00:04:55.620
Two threes make six.
00:04:56.160 --> 00:05:01.320
Three, six, we skip counted by three.
00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:05.480
There are six cupcakes in the array.
00:05:08.190 --> 00:05:11.940
Madison is using skip counting to count the number of fish.
00:05:13.770 --> 00:05:20.840
She sees that there are three fish in each row, so she can skip count by threes.
00:05:21.850 --> 00:05:27.210
She says, three, six, what, what.
00:05:27.780 --> 00:05:29.350
How many fish are there?
00:05:30.790 --> 00:05:36.940
To find out the total number of fish in the array, we need to skip count in threes.
00:05:38.190 --> 00:05:40.720
Madison started to skip count.
00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:43.600
Three, six.
00:05:44.670 --> 00:05:46.050
What comes next?
00:05:47.600 --> 00:05:51.130
Three, six, nine.
00:05:52.800 --> 00:05:56.610
Three, six, nine, 12.
00:05:57.900 --> 00:06:01.200
Four rows of three makes 12.
00:06:01.720 --> 00:06:04.120
Three, six, nine, 12.
00:06:04.270 --> 00:06:06.770
Madison found the answer by skip counting.
00:06:07.990 --> 00:06:09.690
What have we learned in this video?
00:06:10.540 --> 00:06:16.710
We’ve learned that an array is a group of objects arranged in rows or columns.
00:06:18.170 --> 00:06:24.550
And we can find the total number of objects in an array by adding or skip counting.
