Subject: Teaching multiplication basic facts

	For understanding to occur, I suggest teaching basic facts using
hands-on manipulatives and arrays.  Arrays are 'pictures' of the
facts.  You may use chips, counters, buttons, paper clips, etc. or
graph paper cut in rectangles.  For example, if you were multiplying 3
x 4, lay out 3 rows of objects with 4 in each row.  Your child can
count the number of objects and 'see' why 3 x 4 = 12!
