Multiplication Plus™ Circus of Patterns
Multiplication Plus™ has been carefully designed to be both instructive to the student and incentive to independent study.
With two major applications — discovery of number patterns,
and drill and practice in all four basic operations — Multiplication
Plus™ Circus of Patterns presents a great range
and diversity of mathematical concepts, from simple addition
to complex numerical relationships. This unique tool will introduce
participants to the wondrous logical patterns found in number
systems. It is designed to evoke in students of all ability
levels the fun and challenge in discovering relationships between
and among numbers. It provides an excellent opportunity for
students to explore mathematical concepts by using an important
problem-solving strategy — recognizing patterns.
Multiplication Plus™ has three basic
components: the Whole Number Chart, the Decimal Chart, and
the Fraction Chart. The more advanced Discovery
Chart and Sequence Chart augment the basic charts
and round out the Circus of Patterns series.
All patterns involve the four basic arithmetic operations.
Each Circus of Patterns chart
comes in a wall poster that has on its left side an attractive
array of numbers and on its right an explanation of the patterns
in the array. The Whole Number, Decimal,
Fraction Charts are also
available as Classroom Sets; these bundle a wall poster of
the relevant chart with 15 smaller charts, to act as as teacher's
guide and student study aids. A set of Algebraic Charts has
just completed development, and will be available soon.

|Here are just a few of the many comments we've received from our Circus of Patterns customers:
We were so intrigued and impressed with your mathematical patterns chart that we'd like to purchase some of your kits for our school.

Enclosed you'll find a check for two sets of the Circus of Patterns. It looks fascinating. I'm running a math lab for six 4th-grade girls. I want them to get hooked on math. This looks like a great resource.
I read about your marvelous charts in the "Horizon" section of the Washington Post. I am eager to use them in my 3rd-grade classroom.

I enjoyed the article in the "Horizon" section of the Washington Post on Multiplication Plus Circus of Patterns. Being a Middle School math teacher, I am always looking for exciting new materials. This poster will fit the bill!
