I was trying to think of a fun, visual way to have Maggie practice her multiplication facts. I decided to design what I am calling "Multiplication Mums." I used simple shapes on the computer to make them, a circle for the center, and both small and large ovals for the petals.
Once printed, I wrote the main number in the center of each flower. Then, I numbered the small petals around the center, 1 through 12. Mags filled in the larger petals after multiplying the two numbers in her head.
I don't often put math ideas on the blog, but thought this one was too cute not to share! Happy studying!
