: A fun, effective way to learn multiplication
by Emerson Sandow http://www.rhymestables.com/mult/index.htm
Math is on the top of every homeschooling parent’s list of required topics to master. No parent can rest easily about his/her child’s education unless math is properly addressed. Rhymes Tables has a unique and powerful approach to teaching the times tables, using rhymes and vivid images and connecting them to the appropriate numbers.
For instance, “skate” rhymes with eight, “sticks” rhymes with six and “door” rhymes with four, so in the first example on the RT website, 8x8 = 64, using these images and rhymes. The RT approach is to provide a rhyming sentence with this information in it, that stays with your child for life.
As the RT website shows, children who have been tested before and after using Rhymes Tables for only one hour, have increased their number of correct answers from 18 to 29! This sort of performance improvement will ultimately lead to an increase in self-confidence and self-esteem, since both of these personality traits have to be based upon actual success, not merely by telling one’s child that she or he is great. There has to be a foundation for a healthy self-image and math is one of the core fields of endeavor for building such a foundation. Let Rhymes Tables aid your family in developing the multiplication skills that your child will use for years to come. Please visit http://www.rhymestables.com
