Tutoring elementary students revealed that many of the students had not menorized the basic math facts. This knowledge is essential in order for students to understand higher level math concepts Mr. Bobp thought about number relationships including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and developed a method to include each of them in a math square. A Math Square is a large square divided into four small squares. There are four numbers in a Math Square.
By providing two of the four numbers as a problem, students are required to solve for the two empty squares. The top numbers include all numbers from 1 to 9. The combination of all the math squares is called the Math Alphabet. Dallas Bobp has two copyrights protecting this concept. Mr. Bobp partnered with Charles Herndon of Home Plan Software to bring the Math Squares into the world of computer learning. Copyright © 2010 Home Plan Software; All Rights Reserved
