A couple weeks ago I posted a fun Bump game featuring the doubles strategy for learning multiplication facts, and today’s freebie features more practice on that same strategy. Basically, this strategy makes connections between the 2s, 4s, and 8s. If a student knows 2 x 5 = 10, then 4 x 5 would be double that, or 20, because 4 is double 2. And 8 x 5 would be double 20, or 40, because 8 is double 4. Hence the name of the game: Double, Double, Double. 🙂
