MULTIPLY AND DIVIDE WITH STICKS AND STEPS; Teach this Easy Method in Just 5 Minutes

Author: Maureen Stearns, BA, MS

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Enrichment Books, 2011

Material: paperback

Summary: Sticks and Steps together help kids visualize how multiplication works. Draw them or use popsicle sticks to give kids a hands-on opportunity to practice math. This is a guided workbook for teaching multiplication and division.

Type of Reading: playtime reading, interactive reading

Recommended Age: read together: 8 to 12; read yourself: 10 to 13

Interest Level: 9 to 12

Age of Child: Read with and by a 10-year-old girl.

Young Reader Reaction: Our daughter liked the first part of the book, but started getting frustrated with the multi-digit multiplication. We lost her at division.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a very helpful book, and I wish (a) we had had it much sooner; and (b) could use it to allow our daughter to show her work. This is not a book you complete in a few sittings, so it is best to start before they start studying multiplying and dividing at school.

Pros: You'll find lots of help and cheer-leading as you use this book to learn multiplication and division.

Cons: This book is exceptional, but it will not work in school systems or classrooms where teachers expect students to use a certain "method" in doing and showing their work. That added to the frustration my daughter felt.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. This is an exceptional tool for reinforcing math concepts. It definitely beats flashcards!
