The transition from addition to multiplication is challenging for many kids. Our Director of Education serving our Kendall students, Jenny Colletti, offers insight into this common occurrence:
During our last Parent Study Hall, Jenny spoke about how we teach children to understand multiplication: “We learn to add before we learn to multiply. Why? Well because multiplication is repeated addition. When we multiply, we add equal groups. A lot of kids don’t understand that. One of my favorite questions to ask is what is 12 x 12. 144. Ok, great. Now, I ask what’s 12 x 13. There is a logical and efficient way to get to that answer by using your knowledge of 12 x 12. You could just add another group of 12. 144 + 12 = 156. We didn’t get there with memorization, but rather we had the tools of understanding what multiplication is.”
Our Multiplication Fact Fluency Program: we teach scalable strategies that go beyond memorizing the standard 12x12 multiplication table. Key concepts of our Multiplication Fact Fluency Program include:
