If you struggle to teach basic multiplication facts in your classroom, you are certainly not alone. It is HARD to do a really good job of teaching multiplication while also doing a really good job of teaching everything else in your overwhelming curriculum.
But here’s the thing.
Students NEED to know their basic multiplication facts.
When students don’t know their multiplication facts fluenty, their performance in other math concepts will be impacted. They will in turn struggle with concepts like multi-digit multiplication and long division.
We want to equip our students with all of the tools that they need to be successful with their basic multiplication facts. Luckily, there are ways to do this that will actually make learning multiplication EASY for your students.
Throughout this webinar I will discuss a few key points that will transform the way that you teach multiplication.
First of all, I’ll discuss a suggested order of teaching the facts that will drastically cut down the amount of time that you need to teach the facts. When I first started teaching, I made the mistake of teaching the facts in numerical order – 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on. This is a mistake, and it actually makes multiplication much more difficult than it needs to be.
Second, I’ll talk about strategies for every single set of facts. This will help you achieve a balance between mental math and memorization, so that your students can be as successful as possible.
I’d love to help you help your students feel smart, successful, and motivated when it comes to multiplication.
