Today we learned a new math game using multiplication facts to 9x9 (called "Sink or Swim" and using 9 sided dice). Our math lessons are now focused on strategies to improve our multiplication fluency and speed. The second lesson this week was all about using doubles to learn the higher times tables (to figure out 6x8, you can think of 3x8 + 3x8 - double 3x8). The next lesson for Monday will be using skip counting and knowing how to skip count in the higher numbers (6s, 7s, 8s, and 9s).
