Part 4

Tables, Multiplication and Division

This 9 minute video (with commentary) gives a brief overview of my method for teaching times tables, by using Cuisenaire rods and learning to reason from a few key facts. The video includes number patterns at both the concrete and pictorial stages and shows how to explore times tables patterns on an empty number line and by creating a tables square.

Areas on a Grid

A game that can be played either at the concrete or the pictorial level to make connections between multiplication and division and between related times tables facts. (A 2 minute silent stop-motion movie.)
