Multiplication Charts for other things

Posted on April 11, 2018


These are not in lieu of learning number sense and the times tables, but handy as an accommodation while learning higher level skills and concepts.

Our Transitions and Pre-Algebra students get a 25 x 25 table in their course materials (our instructors make their own), and teach students how to use them,

I have not noticed students learning the tables while doing this.  It supports that idea that  retrieval *from our brains* is important for learning to happen, and this doesn’t facilitate that.  Personally I would like to see that worked into the courses but so far the resources like ALEKS aren’t at all well designed.
