Multiplication by 3 Games

Multiplying by 3 means adding the same number three times. For example, if you have 2 apples and you want to multiply them by 3, you would add 2+2+2 to get 6. That means you now have 6 apples. We can write this as 2 multiplied by 3 equals 6. Multiplying by 3 is an important concept to learn because it helps us solve many math problems, such as finding the total number of things when there are equal groups of 3 or tripling recipes in cooking. It's like having 3 groups of the same number of items and adding them together!
