Reviews - What do our customers think?
Cute book, but not for someone who has already mastered multiplication  May 21, 2008
I love Greg Tang's books and his ability to take a subject like math and make it fun, fun, fun. I got this book for my son without seeing it first, and I hoped it was going to be like his other books that make the child solve problems. That is not the case with this book. Instead, this is a book that teaches you tricks to learn how to multiply, number by number, from zero through 10. I have to agree with the review (2 star) from the person who thought that some of the concepts he provided for solving math problems was a bit more complicated than it needed to be. My son, who already knows multiplication, found his suggestions for multiplying by 6's and 8's was way more cumbersome and confusing than it should be. I think this is a great book for a child who is just learning multiplication, but I would not recommend it for someone who knows the subject well. As usual, he does use fun rhymes, and the artwork in the book is fabulous.
Outstanding  Jan 11, 2007
This book has help my six year old understand the concept of multiplication. Thank you so much!!!
The BEST way to teach math  Oct 22, 2005
Half of me wants to praise Gregory Tang for doing what so needed to be done. He has shown how to do math what I call "the easy way", the way great mathematical brains do it. Not only has he made books that teach math how it should be taught, and exposes those boring heavy school books as just that, but he has put it in an amusing form - a geneous in litterature as well as math! The other part of me is like "oh, no! he let the secret out" now people will no longer marvel at my great math ability. After understanding all his books, any child could rival my ability in math, that used to keep my peers in awe!
Math is all about relationships, relationships of numbers. No, he doesn't suggest ways to memorize something just to "get the right answer", he truely makes just the right delicate mixture of encourageing and not getting in the way (that great teachers know), to provide the perfect environment for them to figure out and explore the relationships of numbers themselves.
Math and Literature is a Great Mix  Jul 21, 2005
Greg Tang has done it again, combining literature with mathematics and giving a concrete concept of multiplication with pictures and rhyme. A great introduction to multiplication.
The Best Of Times - A Wonderful Resource!  Oct 23, 2002
As a teacher, this book is a wonderful resource because it does not promote the memorization of multiplication facts, but rather it teaches the reader to problem solve and that there are different ways to approach a problem. As the title suggests, it is full of 'strategies' - when students attempt a mathematical problem of any sort, you want them to have a bank of strategies to draw from. This book is ideal for that. My students enjoyed the playful rhymes, almost musical in a way, as well as the bright, vibrant illustrations of all of Tang's books. Tang has a wonderful way of making math "make sense" for kids. Two thumbs up!
