This is Zoe, who studies math with me. She has come so far this year and last! I’m proud of her hard work, and wanted to show you her system for multiplying. It is often hard for her to remember all the times tables, but she understands the idea of multiplication, so she uses this visual system to structure it for herself. She writes the numbers 1-10 vertically, then makes dots for the numbers she is ‘counting by’, so she can actually count them if she gets lost skip-counting. Its not perfect yet, but she is working so hard that it won’t be long before it’s flawless!
