Hi, I'm Jimmy Chang, and we're here to talk about ideas for hands-on math lesson for multiplication. Now, of course, it really depends on the audience that you have. But here are some ideas in terms of models that you can use for multiplication in math lessons. So, one popular tool, is that of using coins, or if you want, you know, paper money, a dollar bill, dollar bills. But you could do it for any school level frankly, from the very young to the senior level in high school, or even in college, if you'd like. So, you can use the coins or the paper money, to kind of figure out how you can do multiplication, you know, two times how many bills, etc. Now, for the very young, you can use blocks, the large blocks, multiply them out. And for all levels frankly, you can use for example, you know, candy. You can separate the different kinds of candy and then, figure out the different rows and columns. And that'll allow you to use and setup multiplication scenarios. So, you kind of have a nice variety of possibilities, and you can use other ones, not listed here. So, I'm Jimmy Chang and those are some ideas on hands-on math lesson for multiplication.
