Everyone knows that any number times zero equals zero, and any number times one equals itself, but what about the other tables?
This invaluable resource will help teachers guaranty their students master the multiplication facts at grade level using amazingly simple patterns discovered by a fourth-grade teacher and proven to work in inner-city Los Angeles classrooms.
The publication uncovers a number of “secret” patterns that automatically generate the products corresponding to any given multiplication table.
Using these surprisingly simple, yet amazingly powerful patterns, students immediately begin mastering material that would otherwise take weeks, months, or even years to master—if ever—through common-sense logic and easy to apply algorithms.
Some of the information is formatted in the form of student worksheets for teacher convenience. The material can, for the most part, be used in any sequence, though there are some number sense concepts that are developed within certain lessons that are useful when delivering subsequent instruction.
Also, facts learned during previous lessons involving other tables are not repeated in lessons pertaining to the tables that follow. The material addresses skills and concepts related to Common Core Math Standards 3.OA.4, 3.OA.7 and 3.OA.9.
