Awards for Best Multiplication Workbook EVER!
Some of the judges' comments:

my colleagues and would recommend it to others that are teaching
multiplication to their students."
"The students not only were able to
fluently memorize their facts but they were also able to apply them in
the word problems presented in each section. The product helped to build
self confidence and the students were encouraged to make progress by the
fun animal characters."
"I would recommend this to a colleague
because it is teacher friendly and approaches multiplication in a
systematic way. It is easy to use to help students. It scaffolds

Everything you need to help kids
master multiplication can be found within these pages!
Loaded with examples, hints, tips, and playfully designed
worksheets, this workbook is strongly geared to how kids
think and learn.
About half the workbook is devoted to
mastering times tables 0-12, broken down into four levels based on ease
of memorization. A scaffolded approach builds skills and confidence, and
certificates are included with which to reward students upon completion
of each section. More than 100 of the workbook's 260 pages are devoted
to long multiplication, a typically challenging area for students. Age
appropriate word problems appear throughout, building much-needed skills
and confidence at working with real-world applications. The final
section provides standardized test-taking tips and strategies. If you're
looking for a systematic, comprehensive, highly-organized curriculum
that makes learning (and teaching) multiplication fun and easy, you've
just found it!
This workbook focuses on how kids think,
how they learn, and how they have fun learning new material. Kids learn
better when they feel smart and capable. Worksheets that look like fun
seem easier to kids and reinforces learning. The scaffolded approach
helps build students’ skills and confidence by breaking down
multiplication into components. The basic facts section teaches on four
levels, based on ease of memorization.
Each times table has a page for copying
the times table and studying patterns, practicing facts in two different
forms, applying facts to word problems, and testing. Each section
provides cumulative learning and rewards. Kids love to color every
worksheet and certificate and make learning fun. The word problems focus
on multiplication and are age-appropriate. Students learn real-life
applications of multiplication.
This workbook teaches only one skill a
time, giving students practice with that new skill before learning
another. Students advance to themed word problems applying new skills:
economics (lemonade stand), logistics (field day), geography, and
science. Standardized test taking tips and strategies and included to
boost students’ confidence. This workbook teaches strategies to get to
the right answer, provides correct answers, and explains why other
answers are incorrect. Free math learning software is available for
download. Written by Corey Green, M.Ed. and National Board Certified
