Julia Lyles's insight:

It is important that students see math in authentic contexts. If they understand why it is useful in their lives they are more likely to be engaged in the learning process and they will take charge of their learning. These are some useful ways to teach multiplication that are related to real life situations.

## Teaching Ideas

Ways to show multiplication activity - I did this last year, the kids loved it
Julia Lyles's insight:

It is important for students to view multiplication and math in general in different ways. If they are able to understand different ways of solving a problem then math will be easier for them. Creating a project like this will give students a strong visual and allow them to create something that is fun and engaging.

## Multiplication/Division - Basic Facts

Here's a very cool activity on creating a multiplication city. Students create a cityscape and then must decorate it with a variety of arrays.
Julia Lyles's insight:

The last part of this semester we focused on multiplication and arrays. We did a project similar to this that allowed our students to have a real world example of multiplication and arrays.

## Arcademic Skill Builders - Grand Prix Multiplication

Grand Prix Multiplication is a multi-player racing game that allows students from anywhere in the world to race one another while practicing their multiplication facts!

My students loved playing this game! It was a great way to practice their times tables. They raced against each other by logging on to different computers and joining a race set up by one student. The race cars were powered by their math fact knowledge; the faster they knew their math facts, the faster their car would go!

Julia Lyles's insight:

I think this is a great website! My students love being on the computer and they are very competitive. This would be a great way to motivate them to learn their facts instead of having to give them math facts tests every day. This could also be integrated with another subject because the game allows you to play with students from anywhere in the world. This could lead to a social studies lesson about different places in the world and the idea of place making. I think this is a great resource!

Janett Quintanilla's curator insight,

This is a fun game for students at different grade levels to practice their time tables.

## 7 Games for Practicing Math Facts | Scholastic.com

Your first and second grade mathematicians will go from good to great with Flashlight Tag, Speed Racer, and five other ideas for basic math practice.

These are some great math fact games that can be used with multiplication and division facts as well as addition and subtraction facts.

Julia Lyles's insight:

My students are in centers most of the day. This way they are able to experience different modes of learning and work with other students in inquiry based learning as well as guided learning from myself and my mentor teacher. These activities can be used in centers instead of worksheets or work from the book. Students are able to use cards, dice, boards and more to pratice their math skills specifically multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. These are skills that third graders are expected to master before they move on to fourth grade. I love the idea of having students work together in a fun and engaging way to practice their math skills.

## Math Cats Website - Explore the Multiplication Table

"Great interactive website for teaching kids about the multiplication table!"

This website comes in handy when teaching students about arrays. They can easily see how the Multiplication is a collection of arrays which fosters a greater conceptual understanding.

Via Laura Candler
Julia Lyles's insight:

My students love interactive games on the computer. They recently got chrome books for our school so our students have constant access to the internet. This is a great website for students to work on a variety of skills. This quarter students worked diligently on multiplication and arrays. This website offers engaging practice with both. My students would be excited to do this online and making it fun and engaging. I have a lot of students who struggle with math and this could be a great way to get them excited about learning it.
