Just as the name implies, this is a way to memorize the most difficult multiplication facts with the aid of “hints” that will eventually be removed because they will no longer be needed!
Isn’t that great? This method of memorizing is painless, uncomplicated, and effective.
It’s painless because the activities are fun and varied. It’s uncomplicated because the minimalistic parts and directions are easy for both teachers and students to prepare and implement…it’s mostly print and do. It’s effective because it is a combination of games and self-checking assessments. Students monitor their own progress and thus “own it”. Students use both scaffolded and non scaffolded activities in a cumulative manner. The combination of these features diminishes embarrassment and frustration and increases success and confidence.
