“The essence of multiplication is addition”

blog : 22-Apr-2022

Our students who have never learnt “the times table(Kuku in Japanese)” tried this math problem.

In our method, we don’t start teaching from the times table.

The teaching method starts from the times table ruins children’s math skill.

If children who can tell the answer of 7×8 but no idea for 7×12, it means they do not understand the essence of multiplication which means a special method of addition that adds the same number.
