I have a ds who is 10 and doing Math U See, we love it but he is stuck and can not seem to remember all his multiplication facts.
So I am wondering if you have any:
1. Great ideas (we do flash cards and the string around the key looking thing already)
2. Any videos you’ve used
3. Any online (free) sites that teach in a fun game way
4. Any other games or such
Thanks for the help after 3 weeks of this he is still forgetting tomany and I know mine way to well and fast. 🙂
My ds was struggling with his multiplication facts awhile back too~ even while doing Math U See. I posted a similar question about this months ago and Michelle (Bookworm) recommended a wonderful tool that helped him tremendously!
Its called “Times Tales Trigger Memory System” http://www.timestales.com/
My ds truly mastered his upper multiplication facts within a few days. Even my 7 yo was picking up on them. If your son is a visual learner at all and remembers stories well, it might work for him too. I thought it was well worth the price and seemed almost too simple at first. However, it is just a memory tool and not at all a tool to learn HOW to multiply. Thats what Math U See is for. 🙂 HTH
Heather.. which product did you buy? It looks like there are 3 of them and I can see this being a HUGE help for my son and if not him my 2nd oldest would love this method.
Hi all! We have been using a similar book, but I think ours is called ‘Times Tables the Fun Way’ – I ordered it from Amazon.
These little memory jogging stories really seem to work for my dd8 – better than repetition for recalling these facts.
She also plays some little games on multiplication.com and we downloaded a free version of Timez Attack which is a really cool game, but the ingame navigation is a bit clumsy.
Good luck! I am soooo looking forward to moving on past these math facts – there is fun stuff to come in math once we persevere through this.
“Times Tales – Times Tables made easy” for 29.95 looks like the closest to what we purchased. You do not need the flip book its just a fun bonus if you want to spend the extra $.
It looks like they have revised it since our purchase and it now includes 3’s and 4’s times tables. The one we bought was only 6,7 8 & 9’s and the price was only 14.95.
However the revised edition looks even better- just a bit more costly. But IMO it is worth the price to just get those facts down once and for all! 🙂
Doesnt Calculadder make one for mulitplication/division? The addition/subtraction has been great for my younger ones.
I have been trying to download this Timez Attach but I have dial up and after 3 tries I am done. Does anyone have any more ideas?
