Multiplication Strategies to help with Learning Basic Facts:

Learning  your basic facts can be tricky.  All of our students process the concept of multiplication differently, and therefore will build their fluency and understanding at different rates.  Below is a helpful sheet to assist you with helping your children at home.  Learning by rote does not assist our children in developing their number sense.  The strategies in this sheet are really useful.  Give it a go with your children.  We would love to hear how you get on!!!
