Using a 1-100 (10 x10) Number Chart on paper, students create their own Times Tables by pointing,counting, and coloring the numbered boxes. This creates simple geometric color patterns that enable students to learn, predict, and prove arithmetic calculations and "families" of numbers. Students actually create their own "Math Tools for Fun at School"…
