In this modern, technology lead world it is easy to overlook the importance of basic mathematics and mental arithmetic. When every mobile phone has a calculator built in, and every website automatically adds up your shopping cart, who needs to add up in their head? The fact is that mathematics is a vital life skill and as adults we know it is something we use every day in our adult lives. We know that it is essential that we teach our children how to do maths from a young age, but sometimes it is easy to overlook the simple steps we can take at home. We can all remember learning our times-tables at school - one times one is one, two times two is four, and so on - but there was a reason why we learned this way, because it works. But it is not just about learning the times tables in sequence through repetition, it is important to get kids practicing with varying levels of multiplication problem. Working through problems and then checking the answers afterwards is a simple way to practice multiplying numbers.
If your child or student is learning to multiply, a good way to have them start out is learn skip counting. Skip counting is simply counting by a whole number other than one. It is counting by twos, threes, fours, etc. For example, skip counting by twos is the same thing as reciting the two-times tables. So what are the benefits of using playing cards to learn skip counting compared to staring at multiplication worksheets? Well, for one thing, it is not boring! For another, if you are actually counting objects, you have the tactile experience of feeling what you are counting.And there is the fact that you are saying the numbers ,for a reason - after all you are actually counting something.
