Knowing multiplication tables is a key math skill. This is because multiplication tables are not only directly useful, but are also a foundation upon which other mathematical techniques are based - including multiplication of larger numbers, division, and fractions. This book is a guide for parents wishing to help their kids master this important skill. It shows parents how to teach their kids in a simple step-by-step fashion, and includes numerous tips and tricks to help children remember, or work out, the answers. Times tables from 0X0 to 12X12 are covered, and as well as the times tables themselves, the book also includes additional facts, such as common prefixes used for words relating to various numbers, how to quickly check if a number is in the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, or 10 times table, and more.

Teach Your Child the Multiplication Tables - 2nd Edition Like most third graders, my son found learning the multiplication tables through rote memorization a challenge. After an afternoon of tiresome drills, I knew there had to be a better way! I drew a grid for tables 1-10. Not surprisingly, Scott knew tables 1, 2, 5 and 10, the tables with easy patterns. Well, then, why not find patterns for the rest of the tables? Tables for EVEN numbers 2, 4, 6 and 8, we discovered, end in some combination of 2-4-6-8-0 and are easy to learn. Tables for ODD numbers, we found, also have distinct patterns. Patterns made Scott smile. He could see the underlying structure and knew he got it right. The traditional method of learning one math fact at a time, such as 8 x 6 = ?, is not only difficult but highly inefficient. Rote memorization is passive and mechanical. Students typically find it boring. Why not learn one pattern for the entire table? Discovering patterns is active, creative and engaging. The essence of mathematics is patterns. Learning to recognize patterns at an early age develops analytical skills. Patterns greatly benefit children with special needs, such as those with ADD/ADHD, autism and dyslexia. They can better recall and visualize the table when they see a pattern. This is true for all children. Patterns aid recall. My workbook utilizes both left and right-brain strategies to teach multiplication. There are marked differences between children who are left-hemisphere dominant and those who are right dominant. Whereas the left-hemisphere dominant child can construct the whole from the parts, the right dominant prefers the big picture, seeing patterns and making connections. Special needs children are often right-brain dominant. Learning the multiplication tables is much easier when both hemispheres are engaged. It is the responsibility of parents and teachers to ensure children learn the multiplication tables. Without them a child will not progress beyond third grade math. Fractions, decimals, percentages and algebra will be beyond a child's reach. In California, the number one reason students do not graduate from high school is failure to pass algebra. A leading cause is: failure to master the times tables! It is a national disgrace that fifteen-year olds in the U.S. rank near the bottom of industrialized nations in math skills. We must reverse this alarming trend. The time to intervene is in the third grade. Teachers, why not a more effective approach to the multiplication tables than the "drill and kill" of rote memorization? Why not bring the "magic" of math into the classroom? If all third graders were to genuinely like math, they would be more likely to succeed in school. Parents too must do their part. Parents have a huge influence over a third grader. By high school it may be too late. Mastery of the multiplication tables is essential to your child's future. The goal of this workbook is not only multiplication mastery for all children but to instill in them a love of numbers and fascination with math.

I wrote the book, "How To Make Successful Students In One Year - A Model For The World," as a true testament of real world academic success for parents, teachers, students, school districts and governments of the world. I used my skills as a very successful senior engineer (with critical engineering quality controls) and a very successful parent to design many practical innovations to help parents, teachers, students, school districts and governments to make successful students starting from today. The results from using this book are immediate, effective, significant and they work for all determined students of the world. I recommend this book for all parents, teachers, students, school districts and governments of the world.

An Instructional Guide for Learning Basic Math Skills
Author: Andray McCuien
The purpose of this book is to help students develop basic math skills that serve as the building blocks for all mathematical equations, and problems solving concepts. If basic math skills are learned, adding new formulas and problem solving concepts simply become a matter of understanding when and what sequence to apply for each order of operation. If students do not learn the basic foundation of mathematics; addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the time table chart, math will always be a subject that students experience difficulty understanding and comprehending. This book is intended to be a simple guide to help third grade students learn and become proficient in their application of basic math skills. Students will learn to use addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and the time table chart simultaneously while they learn the strategy of counting up. "I have nothing against the usage of calculators, but when students are introduced to the calculator at the third grade level, they become dependent on the use of calculators for assistance with math computations. Once students learn to use the calculator it becomes unnecessary for them to master basic math skills, because they continue to rely on the use of calculators for assistance with math. The calculator becomes the math problem solving tool. Could this be part of the reason students are not performing at levels of proficiency required on standardized test?" It is important for students to learn basic math skills in its entirety, prior to being introduced to the calculator. Once students have developed a basic foundation of math skills then and only then should the calculator be introduced as a learning tool. When students learn the strategy of "Counting Up" they will be able to rely on what they have learned to find the solutions to math problems.
