### Multiplication Circles

I love multiplication circles because they can really help right brained creative kids understand multiplication. Plus, they are interesting for kids who already have a good handle on multiplication.

Completing one of the circles is a bit like doing a dot-to-dot using the ones digit of a multiplication table multiplier. Ok, so that was a bit confusing, so let me try an example.

For example, the numbers in the four times table are 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36 and 40. If you look only at the ones digit you should notice a repeating pattern of 0,4,8,2,6. Those are the numbers to use for the circle dot-to-dot. Try the other numbers to see some more interesting designs.
My eleven year old who was way beyond multiplication loved this activity. Malke at The Map is Not the Territory used a variation of this concept to create Christmas Ornaments. Check it out.
