8 x 7 = ?
Parents, teachers and students are always looking for new ways to help kids learn their Math Facts, especially the multiplication table.
Here’s a recording Marisa did with some tricks she uses to help her with the trickier multiplication facts she has to know. They’re those numbers in the middle that don’t stick in your mind as easily as the lower numbers. I wrote out each trick below after the recording. They’re each like fun rhymes or clever sayings.
-Math Fact: 8 x 8 = 64
Trick: 8 ate (eight) too much and got sick (six) on the floor (four)… 8 x 8 = 64
-Math Fact: 7 x 8 = 56
Trick: You can’t have 7 and 8 before you have 5 and 6… 7 x 8 = 56
-Math Fact: 6 x 8 = 48
Trick: 6 and 8 went on a date to restaurant 48.. 6 x 8 = 48
-Math Fact: 6 x 7 = 42
Trick: 6 and 7 are sweatin’ on a bike made for (four) 2… 6 x 7 = 42
Hope this helps!
Thanks to Marisa for the recording and the multiplication tips!
