journal contribution
posted on 2006-11-01, 00:00 authored by John Gough
Teachers not only know how to multiply, they also know how to teach children multiplication. But at any one time, most teachers are only concerned with a small section of the whole large process of teaching multiplication. It is easy to lose sight of the wood, because of the close attention being given to individual trees. What is the larger picture? How do children learn to multiply, asks the author? The author discusses the progressive stages of ideas and processes that are involved in learning to multiply. He also provides questions to assist teachers with identifying how far students have progressed in their understanding of multiplication.
