Vanishing Tables Teaching Kit (Multiplication & Division Factors) Vanishing Tables Teaching Kit (Multiplication & Division Factors)

The Vanishing Tables Kit was designed for math teachers or tutors and provides an innovative method of teaching students the basic multiplication and division factors in about six weeks.

CONTENTS:

  • Printed directions on how to use the kit
  • Six 3x3" Post-It Note pads with 50 sheets. Pads are mounted on 8.5 x 11" card stock
  • One pad with 50 FULL Multiplication/Division Tables
  • Five pads with PARTIAL Tables 1-5
  • Two Student Assessments printed on card stock to make copies for each student
  • Answer key for both Student Assessments printed on a transparency to make grading fast
THE PROCESS:
The kit contains
6 Post-It Note style sticky backed pads with 50 sheets per pad. Starting with the Full Table, each student in the class receives one sheet of that table to study and memorize, concentrating on those factors printed in orange.

After about one week, the students must return the Full Table to the teacher before they can receive Partial Table 1 to study and memorize those factors printed in orange. After the second week has passed Partial Table 1 is returned and Partial Table 2 is given to the students, with that pattern continuing on with Partial Tables 3, 4 and finally Partial Table 5.

At the end of the sixth week the teacher can make copies of the two assessments included in the kit for each student, to evaluate their progress.

NOTE 1: Each table contains the easiest set of factors printed in orange. Those factors VANISH in each successive table, eliminating the easiest factors first to help students quickly learn the basic combinations.

NOTE 2: The COMMUTATIVE PROPERTY of multiplication and division tables is used to eliminate duplicate factors first.

NOTE 3: The Vanishing Tables teaching method can be augmented with Flash Cards.
