## Visual Multiplication Flash cards

In order to develop a true understanding of multiplication, students need to be able to visualize multiplication in different ways. The following flashcards use groupings and arrays to represent multiplications. They allow students to use various strategies to find the answers, instead of just memorizing the multiplication tables without understanding them.

I suggest that you print them on card stock. You can use them in various ways:

*** Note on the subitizing flashcards: the first pages show grouping with all the dots in each group and are best to use at first. The end of the document has groupings where only one group shows the amount of dots and there is a square hiding the dots in the other groups (so the child can't just count all the dots but has to use other mental math strategies to find the answer).

I suggest that you print them on card stock. You can use them in various ways:

- As flashcards: Turn a card and your child has to tell you the multiplication sentence and the product. Have your child explain how he or she found the answer. See the video on this blog for an example. See how the girl uses her knowledge of doubles and addition in order to find answers: This is good! She is thinking mathematically and shows that she has a strong number sense.
- Association: Mix both subitizing and array cards together. Your child groups the cards according to which multiplication sentence they represent. Find the product for each group of cards.

## Right Brain Multiplication Facts Flashcards

In this video, Diane Craft explains how some students with some auditory processing problems and who rely strongly visuals can't use regular flashcards with the question at the front and answer at the back to practice multiplication facts. If your child is struggling to learn math facts, she has very good insight and some multiplication flashcards that are made for visual learners and that connect facts with an illustrated story. They can be ordered online, or another idea would be for your child to make up their own drawings and stories to associate with the multiplications facts that can be hard for them to learn.

## Fractions

As in multiplication, students need to be able to visualize fractions in many ways. These fractions cards show many ways to represent halves, thirds and quarters. Print them on card stock and use them either as flashcards (pull a card and name the fraction) or try to associate all the cards that represent the same fraction.
