Do you want to implement more mental math strategies into your classroom, but don’t know where to start?
Do you already teach mental math, but want to work more strategically to target your students more effectively?
This is going to be the solution that you have been looking for! The Multi-Digit Multiplication Station integrates simple principles of student engagement including power, fun and choice. These basic principles will engage, motivate, and ensure success for all learners in your classroom.
This Multi-Digit Multiplication Station is a follow-up to the best-selling Multiplication Station for basic multiplication facts.
How Does It Work?
It’s quite simple. Students work through a series of activities for each level. They complete the activities, self-check using the prepared answer keys, and keep track of their progress using their personal tracker. At the end of each level, the student asks the teacher for a quick, informal oral quiz. If the student knows the strategy, they move to the next level. If not, they simply practice a bit more until they feel ready.
The process is entirely student-run. After the program's first week, you will notice your role switching from teacher to facilitator.
Why do students love this so much? It’s easy! They have power! They have freedom! They are truly in control of their learning. And THAT results in highly motivated students who love to learn.
Add to that an effective order of teaching the strategies that makes practical sense, and you will have students who feel smart, successful, and engaged.
