Multiplication Mums

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!


  1. Love it. Thanks for sharing. What a great idea. I'll have to remember this.
