♥ plz give me some tricks to learn.tips on how to learn multiplication tables?
♥ im about to head into the sixth grade, and i'm struggling with math, the only multiplication i memorized is 2's 5's and 10's , i didn't even repeat them at all in third grade. we started in the last weeks of school and i was okay then, but when i got into fourth grade everything came as a huge shock. we jumped right into things and everyone else seemed to know alot while i was completely oblivious to everything. and then we learned division and it was hard to keep up, my grades dropped dramatically. in fifth grade we learned quick division and i dont remember anything. except for the ) and line above that. i don't even remember what side the numbers should be on. i got c's on my math tests barely passing fifth grade, and my teacher made things hard on me since i'm "gifted". i had to stay in for recess to catch up with work. i had work for multiplying by 10,000 and dividing by he same and i failed that test. i had no idea what it did and i spent five recesses on it. it's only two days before sixth grade and i don't really think i have a chance of passing. help!how do you teach a child to 'get' the multiplication table easily?
♥ i am teaching a 12 year old. yeah, kinda surprising she hasn't memorized the table. i'm on some kind of community service soooo another thing, while i was teaching her how to add integers and stuff, i noticed how she is poor at basic mathematical equations (even addition and subtraction!) :(( i want to help her out. she's in 6th grade. still not left behind in school buuuuut how do i work this out? if she can't add properly, then, how can i teach her multiplication? and division's another story =____=.what's the best way to explain to a precocious child why this fact about the multiplication table is true?
♥ check out the multiplication table: http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh120/scythian1950/multiplicationtable02_zps607930fd.jpg any n x n array of numbers with 1 at the top-left corner not only: 1) adds up to a perfect square, but also 2) equals to the sum of cubes of 1 to n e.g., let n = 5. the sum of numbers in the 5 x 5 array is 225 = 1³ 2³ 3³ 4³ 5³ i really do have to try to explain this to a young boy learning about math and multiplication tables. llaffer, this kid does know what the multiplication table is. but you can learn all kinds of things from it besides just looking up products of numbers. koshka, he's my only grandnephew. ben, the problem is the java program. it plays havoc with my computer and with my googlechrome in particular. i've had to uninstall it once again. i don't like having java on my computer. ben, method 2 is what i'm looking for. pretty good, i think i'll be able to explain this to my grandnephew. quadrillator, your algebraic approach is what i did when i was in school, but it requires understanding of algebra. my grandnephew is not there yet, he doesn't understand algebra. i think i like ben's suggested "method 2", it's very visual, no algebra necessary. koscha, i think it would be an interesting exercise with a child showing how cubical stacks of blocks can be regrouped into a flat square. but i think especially after 100, it gets to be a bit unwieldy. nevertheless, it might spark his curiosity, "why is this?"discuss critically how the uses of models help children grasp concepts of multiplication and division?
