Learning basic multiplication facts is a challenge for many students. Students need to memorize basic facts so they will be able to answer them quickly when solving advanced math problems. Students that do not memorize basic multiplication and division facts often struggle with math in the higher grades. So how do you motivate kids to learn their basic math facts? Simply reciting facts or practicing with flashcards is not enough to get kids excited to learn. Instead, try some hands-on games that make learning math facts more fun! Game: Multiplication Draw. Number of players: 2 or more. Materials: A deck of 52 playing cards; Blank paper & pencil for scoring. Each number card is worth face value. Jacks, queens, and kings are worth 10, 11, and 12 respectively. Aces are worth 1.To play the game, shuffle the deck of cards. Player 1 picks two cards from the top of the deck. He will then multiply the cards together. For example, if player 1 drew a queen and a 3, he would multiply 11 and 3 to get 33 points. Each player takes turns drawing two cards, multiplying them, and writing their products on the score sheet.When the the last card in the deck is drawn, players add the products on the score sheet. The player with the highest score in the winner.
As a parent, I am very aware of what my own children are learning in school. For the most part, I have been happy with their progress, but as they rise in grade level, I am starting to see more emphasis on a loose understanding of the concepts and less emphasis on skills--particularly skills with arithmetic of fractions.The main problem with what I see with my students and my own children is that kids are taught "concepts" and are not taught skills--unless they are lucky enough to have a teacher who knows better. Most particularly, children are not taught mastery of arithmetic with fractions. Unfortunately, virtually all of their future math education depends on being able to do fractional arithmetic.
