Subject: multiplication

Many students come into my class saying, "I know my 9's because of the
9 trick."  However, they don't UNDERSTAND how to count in multiples of
9.  9, 18, 27 etc.  I teach my students multiples at the beginning of
the year and have them practice writing multiples to 12.  We practice
multiples around the room, going to lunch, etc.  My goal is for my
students to understand their multiplication facts not memorize them. 
For struggling students I use the Al Abacus by Joan Coter which shows
multiples in a concrete way.  I also use Joan Cotters math games.
