Right-Brained Multiplication & Division is for students who are strongly visual, kinesthetic, and/or tactile; who learn all at once through pictures, are drawn to patterns, rely on body motions, and who need to understand the process behind each math problem they solve. Our approach will show students what multiplication & division means, will relate the two skills to each other, and will present the facts via stories and images to help provide hooks for learning and recall.

This resource includes full color images, color-coding within the instructional pages, clear directions for the teacher or parent, hands-on practice, skits to act out, and practice problems complete with answer key. The optional Student Workbook provides you with all the student activity pages which appear in the book. The download may be printed as often as you like, saving you from having to photocopy the pages you need from inside the book.

#### Why many students struggle with learning multiplication & division:

1. Many children don’t learn new information by simply trying to memorize facts. They might remember briefly, but after a few days or hours, the facts they crammed into their brains are gone!
2. For many children, learning times tables is tedious and there is little understanding of what they are doing.
3. The sheer number of facts they have to learn seem insurmountable.
4. When kids memorize facts, most of the time they don’t understand how to apply what they have learned in daily life.
