Do you have 4th or 5th grade students who do NOT know their basic multiplication facts? Is it a struggle for these students to learn the complicated processes and steps involved in larger multiplication and long division? Do you have students who get easily confused while trying to follow the DMSB steps for long division?
This No-Prep "Workaround" is for you! It is a very simple, classroom-tested strategy that gives kids ownership of a tool they can make & then use to quickly solve the basic facts in order to continue with the processes of larger multiplication and long division. The greatest reviews we have gotten have been from the students themselves who feel like they can finally "keep up" with instruction in these complicated computations!!
