63 Take Tens
The ten times table is often learned by rote as a rhyme. Research suggests that table tests of this rote learning can be the start of maths anxiety, hindering the learning of maths for a lifetime. BUT good mathematicians are often NOT good rote learners!!!
When you share these games with your child they will discover that multiplication by ten can be connected to real life through playing with 10p coins. They will experience powerful imaginary images as some of those coins disappear from view helping the brain move from the maths of dealing with objects to more challenging abstract concepts.
With raisins or chocolate the connection between multiplication and division reveals itself naturally... and you will have something good to eat too.
