Uglification: Understanding Multiplication Concepts.
Dorwaldt, Louis E., Jr.
Adult Literacy and Basic Education, v13 n2 p61-70 1989
Established methods of teaching multiplication (tables, flash cards, repetitive exercises) do not work well with adult underachievers. The properties and concepts of multiplication of whole numbers must be presented as observable, fun, and practical. Finger math methods may succeed where pencil and paper fail. (SK)
