Participants will be walked through the process of teaching the times tables. Step one is learning the 'Magic Numbers', a set of mnemonic images that represent the numbers 1 through 10 with auditory, visual and kinaesthetic connections to make them easy to remember. Step Two is to learn the first set of stories that connect numbers in the brain ways we naturally remember. This eliminates the need to finger count or draw sets to solve, even for the larger questions. Step Three is walking a learner through a math fact from the two numbers to a simple story to the answer in the form of a memory palace and object. Teacher get to be a part of the learning experience without the need to take notes or listen to a lecture.
