Math Game – Multiplication Tricks that are great Brain Teasers & Puzzles – LearningMole

How to multiply by number 9? Some kids know how to count quickly in mind to bring the right answers for number nine times table, but some find it difficult and always search for a trick. We have a trick that only depends on the fingers to help the kids to know and memorize number 9 times table.

Multiplication tricks will usually depend on the number that the child is learning. In this educational video, number nine is the one focused on and the trick is considered the easiest because kids will immediately know and remember what they are supposed to do.

Let the kids spread their both hands and fingers in front of them and number those fingers from 1 to 10 – this method is only used to teach the kids the multiplication times table for number nine from one to ten only, which is the basic.

All what the kid will do is bend the finger they are going to multiply by 9 and the ones placed will reveal the answer but it is not going to be about counting the number of fingers spread but will be about translating these fingers to numbers. For example, bending the first finger will reveal the answer for the equation 9×1=9, bending the second finger for the equation of 9×2 will be translated into two parts: the first number before the bent finger which is 1 and the rest of the fingers after the one bent which is 8 and this means the 9×2=18, etc.

Kids are not supposed to depend on calculators at an early age or when they are still in the initial steps of their learning journey and that’s why these tricks are useful because they help the kids with doing their calculations and finding their answers in the middle of the way if they faced any obstacles and problems.

When it comes to the different multiplication times tables, we have those on our channel for the different numbers, some of these educational videos are the ordinary ones related to knowing the times tables in general, and some are related to such tricks which the kids learn in order to make the timetable they are learning much easier and more recognizable.

## Interesting Multiplication Tricks

Generally speaking, the tricks that are related to mental math are not just about those multiplication times tables, but there are some fun tricks which are used as some kind of playing games with friends and family and showing them some magic, which is about knowing the final answer for a game before even the player tends to choose a number.

The more interesting and unique methods the parents tend to use in order to teach kids specific lessons, the more the kids will enjoy learning and will find it easier to get the lesson and at the same time remember it later on when it comes to the point of using it. These multiplication tricks for kids are very useful and we believe that they are the reason behind those kids who end up knowing the answer for a specific multiplication equation.

Do you know how to multiply? The basic multiplication could be taught through different methods and choosing the one to be eventually used will be the kid’s choice since they are the ones who will be solving the problem and the ones who are learning the lesson in the first place.

Parents homeschooling their children should give them the time needed to practice and at the same time they should never worry if the kids are taking more time than expected because they are all different and might be learning and receiving the information in different time intervals, which is normal for the kids.

Help your child to explore the key concepts of number, counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in Maths. Spelling, reading, writing and grammar in English. Help them to develop their imagination and creativity with crafts and to explore a range of skills to cook, bake and create tasty treats and snacks.

Easy-to-follow activities will support you and your child to learn and practice new concepts as well as enjoy spending time together. Help your child to progress and explore and most importantly – have fun!
