Dyscalculia: Can Times Tables help?


Sometimes the original is best. Dyscalculics should keep a times tables chart (like this one) handy every time they do math, because looking up a multiplication answer in context reinforces more than just one right answer.


Let's say you need to know what 5 x 3 equals. If you search the 3's times table: you would see that 4x3=12, 5x3=15, and 6x3=18. Or, you might check the 5's, and you would see that 2x5=10, 3x5=15, and 4x5=20. All of these facts are recorded, connected, and filed together-- which helps us recall information later.


For students with dyscalculia, using a times tables chart makes math work easier to understand, faster to complete, and better connected in the brain.
