Mix It Up Multiplication

Math can be lots of fun.  The mathy mamas who lead our math club have proven that for three years now.  (Thank you, thank you, thank you.)

Math can also be, at times... well, kind of boring.  Like when you're memorizing the multiplication table.

So, we like to mix it up when we can.  Here are a couple simple ideas we've enjoyed...

(dry-erase crayons I discovered one day while shopping & snuck into the cart) 
It's good to keep a few tricks up my sleeve.
