Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Greg Tang takes on the times tables, teaching kids innovative ways to multiply numbers and derive answers WITHOUT memorization.

Four is very fast to do when you multiply by 2.

Here's a little good advice --

please just always double twice!

BEST OF TIMES gives kids an intuitive understanding of multiplication, encouraging them to arrive at answers on their own rather than memorizing the times tables. A child who can multiply by two, for instance, can multiply by four and even eight! Likewise, times six builds on times two and times three.With his common-sense approach, Greg Tang encourages kids to solve problems creatively, building both their skills and their confidence.

Synopsis:

This witty story gives kids an intuitive understanding of multiplication by encouraging them to arrive at answers on their own rather than memorizing tables. Full color.
