While the multiplication table of 2 IS easy, children still need to practice it "backwards" to master it completely. In this lesson, we learn the table of 2 in three PARTS: (1) the skip-counting pattern - both "up and down"; (2) the table; and (3) the table backwards.

We use the STRUCTURE of the table, which makes memorizing easier, as it connects the facts with the basic concept of multiplication in a stronger manner than flash cards.

Students can just watch the video to learn the times table! I will do all the pointing and drilling, and students can simply think the answers in their minds!

The drilling used in this video is not a totally random drill but "structured", which helps you learn the table more efficiently, because you don't have to rely on "blind memorization" alone.
