Back in July 09, I was given the opportunity to review the Teach Your Child the Multiplication Tables workbook. It’s been a few months now, and my son has improved by leaps and bounds. He has a clear understanding of the concept, and is still enjoying the workbook and applies it to alot of everyday things. Like when we were preparing to make a huge batch of choc chip cookies to be given away for his birthday, he was given the task of working out how many cookies we had to make.
Was pretty cool seeing him work the answer out. Which was 3 cookies x 30 people. 😉 You do the math.
Here’s a short recap of the original review :
Now, as a parent, I have to admit, I really suck at teaching Maths. Perhaps I’m too impatient with my kids and think ahead of myself. The easy stuff like Addition and Subtraction was taught with much frustration, on my part, and much dismay, on my kids’ part. I dreaded the idea of teaching Multiplication and Division! When the book “Teach Your Child the Multiplication Tables, Fun, Fast and Easy with Dazzling Patterns, Grids and Tricks“, arrived, I looked at the front cover with much skepticism. How “fun” could it be?
I completely forgot how amazing it is, when the brain opens up, finds a pattern and starts working furiously at the numbers. Until this book arrived. My 7 year old saw this book and immediately wanted to work on it. I knew he learnt some multiplications at school, but I wasn’t sure how much.
