Here’s your opportunity to impress anyone – including your children, when you teach them both the multiplication table (the fast way) and the Roman numeral numbers.
As my gift to you, the Roman numerals ebook is FREE for you to download. You will now be able to read the date on the cornerstone block when the building was erected, and the date the movie was made at the end of the scrolling credits.
I’ve also included as an added bonus, ‘A Short Way to Teach Long Division’. Once your child learns the multiplication table, division becomes a snap! It’s multiplying in reverse!
I created this mnemonic device which associates each set of numbers with the answer. For example, again: 6 x 8 =? The clue: What is ½ of 8? The answer is 4; put it in front of the 8 and the answer = 48.
I tested it out with children I worked in class who were learning the table by rote, and they learned the whole table in ½ the time and with greater accuracy than other students. I found that my system works!
Know chapter numbers when you see them in Roman numerals in book table of contents and the dates when movies were made when the credits scroll down the screen. You can even teach your children how to write their birthday in Roman numerals.
Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
