What kind of teaching strategies can I use to teach multiplication and division facts to students?
I am asking the question, why am I answering my own question?
these might be good places to start:
For math strategies, try using dice, playing cards, and errorless learning with flip books where the answer is under the window. Keep a ready stack of flip books ready for each week. Most important, target (goal) a set amount of fact families per week with each student's fluency data to ensure progress and individualization.
I use the nines trick in multiplication and in division if there are two numbers I find its multiples.
how about using the area model in order to show the idea of multiplication? It's just repeated addition but you're arranging them in equal sets and adding them to cover a flat space.
This is a link to a family facts card from Mad Cats. It looks like a fun way to help kids learn multiplication and division facts. http://www.mathcats.com/explore/factfamilycards.html
