We were exploring the Times Table Grid yesterday and I am attaching the
questions that we posted on the discussion board:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/numbers/wholenumbers/multiplication/timestables/
IceBreaker:
Time Tables
Use the discussion board to post your answers.
a. What grade level will you introduce this activity and why?
b. What mathematical skills is enhanced in this activity other than the
multiplication facts?
c. Do you think the higher level students (say Algebra 2, PreCalc…) may benefit
from this?
I apologized for the mixed up because we were trying to post discussions on the
board yesterday and the teachers that worked with me did this. Hope this
helps.
