The Flin Flon School Divisions Numeracy Consultant Rick Hall presented to the School Board last night results of his multiplication research project of students in grades four to eight. The Board received a refreshing math lesson from Hall as an example of how he teaches his students factoring. The Board members did well with Halls example of a trinomial equation. The final results of the research project showed that through teaching strategies students learn their times tables efficiently although Hall stated he believes that ultimately memorization would be more effective. Hall’s lessons showed a huge improvement from the over three hundred students who participated.
