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.
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.
