The kindergarten students have been working hard on learning both static and dynamic multiplication using the golden beads, stamp game, bead frame and dot board to solve problems.
Stamp Game: These children are using the stamp game to do multiplication. It works like the golden beads but instead of unit beads there are unit stamps. Instead of ten bars there are ten stamps. Instead of hundred squares there are hundred stamps. Instead of thousand cubes there are thousand stamps.
A Look Into Next Week: Static and Dynamic (exchanging) Multiplication
- Exchanging 1s, 10s, 100s and 1000s
- Using single units, 10 bars, 100 squares and 1000 cubes
- Discovering that multiplication is simply repeat addition
