Multiply and Divide with Stick and Steps...Review & Giveaway!
Math concepts can seem very abstract, but in just a short time, literally in just 5 minutes, students can learn how to multiply. This book concretely shows what multiplication is, instead of just having students memorize the times tables. It gives step-by-step instructions as well as sample problems showing how the process works. A natural flow occurs throughout the book as concepts get more difficult. Also included are easy ways to divide, find least common multiples, and square roots. This simple, hands-on method will help students achieve a better understanding of mathematics and boost self-confidence as well. Students will become so proficient they will be able to teach Sticks and Steps to others who struggle with multiplication and division. Multiply and Divide with Sticks® and Steps is easy to learn, easy to teach, and so logical, it's easy to remember. An essential resource for parents and educators to carry with them in their bag of tricks.
When I went through this book I was very impressed. This is a wonderful way to teach children who struggle with the traditional way of multiplication and division. It is quick and easy to learn (and teach!) and I think this method would be tremendously helpful to children who learn more visually. I really wish I'd had this book as a kid because it would have saved a lot of frustration. I am a visual learner and the traditional memorization method did not work so well for me. I think this really would have helped! Multiply and Divide with Sticks and Steps is ready to go for when A, W & R head off to school! If you have a child who is learning their tables this would be a great book to go over with them this summer. You can pick up your copy today on Amazon...
