Product Description
This math resource contains five suggested ways to use Pattern Sticks for learning multiplication facts and working with fractions and includes:

Pattern Sticks are a visual way of showing students the many patterns on a multiplication table. Since the pattern sticks are moved around to help solve a problem, they are appropriate for the kinesthetic student as well. The pattern sticks work well in a regular classroom, but are also a very effective math tool for those with learning disabilities.

Also included in this resource are twelve Pattern Sticks that may be copied for the students to cut out and use. Download the Preview Version to view “Lesson C” and “Lesson D” as well as two sample Pattern Sticks.
