These colorful flashcards illustrate the array format of each multiplication fact from the 2x table (with factors 2-9) to the 5x table (with factors 2-9). Also, by turning each card once to the right, the student can view both array formats for the main multiplication fact and its "turnaround". There are spaces and blanks to fill out on flaps that coordinate with each fact. Using the array as a scaffold, the student can easily fill in "___rows x ____ in each row = ____" written on the flap as well as filling in another space on the flap to write the actual multiplication fact. The student who becomes more confident with these facts can be quizzed on the facts with the flashcard flaps turned down, the answers hidden.
It's easy to make these cards. Simply print out on thick cardstock printing paper and cut out on the perimeter of the card, along the heavy line. A separate small square contains the answers shown in light gray. Cut out this square and glue it onto the back of the card.
These multiplication flashcards can be practiced by the student working independently as well as with someone else quizzing the student.
These flashcards can be printed in color or black and white.
There is another flashcard set (set II) of the same type for multiplication facts of the 6x,7x,8x, and 9x tables available in my store.
