This interactive Flash book of poems by Greg Tang and pictures by Harry Briggs helps children master their times tables through a deeper, more intuitive understanding of multiplication instead of memorization. Students use partial products to multiply larger numbers, first breaking them into smaller, more manageable parts. After reading the poem and examples, learners can test themselves by applying the strategies to a series of 3-5 challenges.
