The Strategic Math Series focuses on how to teach basic math facts and operations to students of any age. Content is built upon the concrete-representational-abstract method of instruction. In this approach, understanding of mathematics is developed through the use of concrete objects, representational drawings, and an easy-to-learn strategy that turns all students into active problem solvers.
Multiplication Facts 0 to 81 provides all of the materials you need to teach multiplication facts using the concrete-representational-abstract method of instruction. The manual outlines specific teaching procedures for each lesson and includes student tests, progress charts, practice sheets, and more.
In studies, computation scores of students with learning disabilities rose from a pretest mean of 45 percent to a posttest mean of 92 percent. In addition, their speed in making these calculations increased 400 percent. Their mean posttest scores were computer problems--92 percent; word problems without extraneous information--100 percent; word problems with extraneous information--92 percent; and creation of word problems--71 percent.Research: Multiplication Facts 0 to 81
