## Math Word Problems with Katie

Solve multiplication and division word problems with Katie.
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

My kids love to learn things with interactive games. I have used online sources like this for both science and language arts. I can't believe resources like this aren't used very often. Games like this engage all my students. They all want to be apart of solving the problem. We use a thumbs up/thumbs down to vote on answers. They are always thrilled when they get it right.

I think games like this ad an extra layer to math. Math is such a strenuous topic for some children. When you make it into a game, they don't even realize that they are learning. It takes away the stress factor and the need for perfection.

## Fun Math Games for the 4th Grade | eHow

It can be challenging to make math fun to learn and teach kids that math skills stretch into areas of their lives other than the classroom.
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

I don't typically like eHow articles. However, the last game that this article suggests is related to multiplication. It is a bingo style game. I thought that this was a fun idea. A teacher could even adapt this to whatever times table her clas is learning. It would be so easy to create a bingo grid on word or excel that is tailored to the weeks lesson. This activity can even translate to other subjects in math.

I love activities that translate into other areas. When you can connect topics even with a simple game it takes the stress off of learning something new.

## Teaching the Times Tables with Pictures and Stories| Multiplication.com

Learn why kids have fun learning the times tables when taught with pictures and stories.
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

This link takes you to a website that shows a 3 step process for teaching multiplication. I like most of the ideas but I do no think that I would use all of them.  Step 1 is 2 videos that they suggest you show your children. The show teaching multiplication through baking cookies. I would definitely use this part of the process. I would show the video to my kids and have them do the activity along with the video. Afterwards, I would surprise them with real cookies!

What  a fun way to engage in mathematics!

## A Way To Prevent Burnout?

It's hard to dispute that teachers are some of the hardest workers out there. They wake up at the crack of dawn and work long after their students have left for the day.

## Comment on A Whole New World….. but not really by Rebecca Haab

As an upcoming teacher it was interesting to read about things at a higher level math class. I think that although worksheets maybe “easier” it is not a way to learn and from your experience it is not the way they want to learn either.
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

Worksheets are a great aid but should never be depended on! #BoteMath

## PLN

This is some of the results from searching Math Anxiety. There is so much unnecessary stress on math!
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

I searched Math Anxiety! There is so much anxiety over this subject. You don't see this over any other subject. We put too much pressure on the subject. Math is become a "four letter word"!

This post is exactly what is wrong with American schools. Urban areas are not adequately funded. This post is just one example among many. Children are falling between the cracks. The children in this school do not even have a math teacher!.

## multiplication idea bank

good ideas for teaching multiplication, shared by teachers
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

This is a very intersting resource. It is set up like a message board but it has the answer to every question you might think of when teaching multiplication. One idea that stood out to me was turning multiplication into rectangles. "The  cheapest way is just to use graph paper and color in  squares. So again, with 3 x 4 (3 groups of 4), to show 3  groups of 4, students would color 3 rows with 4 squares in  each row (4 + 4 + 4). To show 4 x 3 (4 groups of 3),  students would color 4 rows with 3 squares in each row. They  can then compare these two rectangles and see that in both  cases, 12 squares are colored, but one looks like the other,  turned 90 degrees. " It is like making arrays but the examples to me look a little bit different. It isn't just a boring old array if you add color to spice it up.

There is also a whole section devoted to ryhmes, songs and stories. Integrating music into math is an excellent way to learn. It's not just rote memorization if you make it fun and engaging.

In general I really like this site. When teaching mathematics in the future, I will definitely be pulling ideas from this bank of information.

## Sense-making and Multiplication

Enthusiastic ways to teach multiplication and math to students in grades 3, 4 and 5. Using patterns and other learning tip can help elementary school students to learn multiplication faster and allow them to apply it to other problems.
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

This not only a great incite into multiplication but a look into how schools function on another country. I personally liked the lesson that this 4th year teacher taught on the 4 times family. I wish that more schools had this kind of technology. It allows for significantly better instruction. When we have the tools we need to teach, we teach more effectively.  I also liked how she created a 4x family number line. It was a physical object that the students could see and touch. I think it is important to learn math hands on. When kids can play around with the facts, and break them down, I believe that it allows them to better understand "why" they math is done.

Julie Price's curator insight,

I really love this video about the importance of teaching multiplication in a way that builds students confidence and engages them in many different ways. I like that this teacher made learning the math four times tables into a game where every student is involved. The students in this video were engaged and were excited to practice math. These are the types of lessons that I want to include in my classroom as I continue to teach multiplication. I really liked the number line that she used because it resembles a multiplication strategy that my students have just learned. It was really interesting to see the approach that teachers from different countries are taking to teach multiplication. I think that we can learn a lot from looking at how different countries are teaching.

Tiffany Tucker's insight:

Students always asl"When are going to use this?".

As an educator we must have an answer for this.

Tiffany Tucker's comment, September 17, 2013 8:38 PM
Only 99% of us use higher mathematics in our careers. Teachers results to using fear to motivate students into learning mathematics. But the fact is, they just don't use it. However, as an elementary teachers, we need to teach mathematics. Without the basic, students can't make it into society.

## How to Fix Our Math Education

The current curriculum is not a good way to prepare a vast majority of high school students for life. (Are "quantitative literacy" & "mathematical modeling" the new faces of math instruction?
