DOT CARDS The main focus of each binder is the dot-card concept. Each
binder contains 78 colorful Dot Cards, a critical, visual component intended
for demonstrations, individual, or small group use. Cards show “dots”
that equal two multiplication problems, both appearing on the cards. For example,
“3 x 4” and “4 x 3” are shown on the same card. Students
quickly learn to apply skip counting by 3’s or 4’s to solve the
problem. Cardstock cards can be laminated for durability.
COMPONENTS Each 150-page binder includes one set of Dot Cards, reproducible
activities, parent letter, teacher ideas, and “real-world” applications.
