"Multiply and Divide with Sticks and Steps: Teach this Easy Method in Just 5 Minutes" teaches a special method to help struggling students learn how to multiply or divide in just 5 minutes. Using clear illustrations of sticks and steps, the author employs a multi-sensory system of teaching and learning that is superior to the rote memory so often expected of children learning to multiply and divide. With touching, auditory, and verbal prompts, students are learning concepts with a concrete rather than an abstract model. Plus this new system of learning multiplication and division is fun! Confidence soars with success and each set of problems ends with a boxed inset of concept rein forcer, plus an inspiring quotation or proverb about learning and living each day. "Multiply and Divide with Sticks and Steps" is a teaching text intended for adults and educators and older students.
