Math is beautiful. Its patterns and logic are inspiring. But many students struggle to master core concepts and give up in frustration. This is a tragedy! It is heartbreaking to see smart, capable students turn their backs on math--just because there is a missing link in their understanding. But when students see the patterns and master the concepts, they started to get excited! What if students could play math games that were both fun and educational? And what if these games could help students really see the structure and patterns of multiplication? What if the playing board was the multiplication table itself?
