In an attempt to follow some of the content that the other Grade 7 classes are doing in Math, Mr. Chung and I decided to spend some more time reviewing the Multiplication Table. While that might seem to be elementary, there are a number of students who still grapple with it.
Some of the upcoming Math we will do will need you to be comfortable and confident with these multiplication skills. So, the skills will be developed in small steps.
Again, the link to the JUMP Math approach to learning your tables:
ONCE YOU LEARN THESE, YOU WILL PROBABLY NEVER FORGET THEM!
In class, we looked at some basic models:
