This poster was created by and for mathematicians, teachers, children, and parents. What is multiplication all about? Why is multiplication useful, beautiful, and fun? The twelve fundamental models address these questions. Each model tells its own multiplication story that comes with two clear illustrations, example formulas, and short activity prompts. It is an intriguing invitation to spend hours exploring rich mathematics.

Mathematics works so much better when colleagues, friends, and family support one another! We want to help people do math together in local classes, groups of parents, and math circles. That’s why you now get big discounts for small bundles, plus savings on shipping. This is also perfect for larger groups, fundraisers, and small bookstores, because you can resell the posters at full price. Or buy five posters and give four to friends as gifts.

You get $5 off each poster – that’s a third of the price! – if you buy 5 copies or more.

You get $1 off each poster if you buy 2 to 4 posters.

Combine the printable files with one or more ebook for $2 off each.

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:

- My homeschooler (age 7) is discovering multiplication. He thinks math is like a fun mystery puzzle. – Christina
- I teach at the secondary level to kids (Gr. 9 and 10) with very poor numeracy skills. I want to teach numeracy (esp. multiplication) since this has been a major ‘gap’ or roadblock to understanding curriculum. – Dawn
- My daughter is only 4 so maybe a bit young, but she seems quite interested in numbers and things like fractals (partly thanks to Let it Go from Frozen that mentions fractals!) – Joe

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 Explorer*s 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.

[…] If all you learn about multiplication is times tables and perhaps the column method, it won’t be too surprising if your concept of multiplication doesn’t go any further than repeated addition. Multiplication is repeated addition but it is much more. To have a robust internal conception of multiplication, you would want experiences of other ways that multiplication is used. Natural Math have a great poster that shows 12 different models of multiplication. […]

Is there another format to purchase this information in? I don’t need a big glossy poster in my home, a pdf will suffice.

Hi Brooke,

I see you’ve registered for our Multiplication Explorers course https://naturalmath.com/multiplication-explorers/ which does come with an electronic version of this poster. Thank you for bringing that up. I am going to add this piece of information to the page. I hope you enjoy the course!

Hi there! I’m a mathematics teacher, and would love to purchase this great looking poster for my classroom. I’m in Australia, so it might be difficult to post it. But would love to purchase a digital copy with the licence to print it and use it in my classroom. Is this possible?

Hi Isaak,

Thank you for the suggestion. We now added the high-resolution printable files of the poster as an option, with the rights to print it non-commercially. I hope it helps!
