Multiplication Facts for Kids

Multiplication Facts for Kids

 

Description

Multiplication is a fundamental arithmetic operation that children must master in order to move on to higher mathematics. Memorizing multiplication facts increases the speed at which a child can solve problems. In addition to memorizing multiplication facts, children need to understand the meaning of multiplication.

Once a child can identify numbers, count, and perform arithmetic operations, he or she is ready to multiply. First, it is important for the child to understand that multiplication describes how many times a number is added to itself. The operation of multiplication is typically denoted with the use of the multiplication sign (x or •). Children should recognize that multiplication is a short-hand way of writing addition. For example, 2x3 is the same as 2+2+2. Next, children need to learn that multiplication is a binary operation where two numbers are multiplied to find a product. Even in a problem where several numbers are multiplied, the product is found by methodically multiplying two numbers at a time. Presenting groups of objects in an array enables young learners to visualize this concept.

As a parent with a busy schedule, how can you help your child understand multiplication? Chances are, you're already doing it. Talk to your child about the meaning of multiplication. How many cars in each row of the parking lot? How many rows? How many cars? Point out grid-like patterns of objects such as floor tiles. How many rows? How many columns? How many tiles in all? Count aloud by two's, three's, and four's together. You'll be amazed at how much your son or daughter will learn if you'll simply talk about multiplication in terms of household items.

How quickly your child will learn multiplication depends on many factors. But once a child has learned to multiply, he or she will want to practice often.

Multiplication Facts is a fun, convenient way to introduce and reinforce the basic concepts with your child. For all the times you and your child have a minute or two, this iPhone application is the perfect opportunity to practice multiplication skills. It will entertain both of you while you’re waiting in line at the grocery store, sitting in the waiting room at the dentist, or traveling by bus or train. The possibilities are endless!
