Some tips and tricks to start multiplication which will help you in knowing your times tables. I followed this approach with my daughter (she is in grade 1 rt now) and am very happy with the results. She does not have any apprehensions of which table is asked and does a quick mental maths if she does not know the answer.
Tips to approach the concept of multiplication :
I explained these concepts using lego pieces . You can use anything small and handy.
- Now that the kids know 2 digit addition the best approach to start multiplication is by asking them to do repeated addition. Ask them to count the objects in groups of 2 then 3 and so on.
- Once they are thorough with repeated addition you can ask them to do skip counting.
- Ask them to divide the total number of objects into equal groups.
- Arrange the total number of objects in an array of row and column.
Below is a figure to illustrate how multiplication can be introduced to kids.
