Teaching Times Tables with a Number Stick

My friend Shawn from #mathchat shared this video about teaching times tables with a number stick. It’s been haunting me ever since!

I have to learn to use one!

I just had to learn how to teach with this thing, and get me one! So I looked around to find out how to do it with other numbers. I found this write up of Jill Mansergh’s explanation. And here is Mansergh’s video of how to do it:

Where do you get one?

As far as I can tell, you gotta rob your mop of its handle, get some tennis grip tape and make one. I can’t find a place to just buy one – anywhere!

So I’m off to buy a mop.

What do you think? Have you used a number stick? Do you own one? Wanna sell it to me?
