Learning Multiplication Facts
I use these lessons as overhead transparencies for introducing multiplication. I like to give the students the same lesson packet at their desk. Each lesson concludes with a quick quiz, so the teacher and students and teacher can see if the skill or concept presented has been mastered right away. Just fill in the answers on the overhead given out by student participants. (Also please see other multiplication quizzes and ideas I have posted that work with this.)
