Jan 26 – Feb 2 Avoid Hard Work: Problem-Solving – for parents & teachers with children ages 3 and up
Multiplication is our most requested course topic. This course is self-paced, organized into three themes: calculus, algebra, and number sense.
We love to read notes from participants explaining why they join, so here are a few:
Most of the activities have no pre-requisites, plus we give you lots of ideas for adapting them for younger (ages 3-5) and older (13+ ) children. A single activity can take you as little as 10 minutes or as long as a couple of hours, depending on how much your child and you get into it.
Multiplication Explorers invites you to master holistic approach to learning multiplication. Memorization based on smart number patterns is a part of it. The course also includes bridges between multiplication and natural world, as well as links to many virtual and imaginary worlds in books, music, technology, art, and games.
