Description

Do you have a child at home who is struggling to memorize the times table facts? Are you trying the old kill and drill method, but not getting very far? Are you struggling to help them, and come to terms with a new approach to conceptually based mathematics? If so, this is the right course for you!

This course will educate parents in understanding the processes of multiplication taught in schools today so parents can in turn support their children at home.

I have included an 14 videos and an hour of instruction, as well as many, many printable worksheets that share interesting and fun games and activities for you to do with your child. There are also numerous, intentionally designed drill and practice activity sheets for you and your child to work on together.
