Well, long story short, Dr. Daniel Amen was a keynote speaker at the Expo. He also did an all-day preconference session and a luncheon session. Yes, this is THE Dr. Daniel Amen from the PBS channel my mother watched ... and she was right ... I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him at the Expo and can't wait to read more!
His book, Magnificent Mind at Any Age, includes the following:
- SEVEN Principles to change your brain and your life
- The ONE question you should ask yourself everyday if you really want to be successful in life
- Tips on how to be happier, more focused, less anxious and less depressed by balancing three important brain systems
- TWELVE brain-healthy foods everyone should include in their diet
- Things you can do NOW to prevent Alzheimer's disease

This array represents 7 x 6 = 42
It's SEVEN rows of SIX columns.
I checked with a Math Facilitator at D.E.S.E. over Christmas Break, and she said to teach it this way too.
5 x 4 = 20 would be FIVE rows of FOUR columns.
4 x 5 = 20 would be FOUR rows of FIVE columns.
Consider asking your students to form arrays when seated on the carpet. You could ask for six rows of four columns (if you have 24 students) which would represent 6 x 4 = 24.
If your numbers won't divide evenly ... consider teaching remainders.
