Learn multiplication tables in a different and fun way! This mechanical toy uses a set of pivoting links to show the multiplication product of 2 numbers. After building the machine, select two random numbers between 1 to 12 with the machine’s two built in number dials. Multiply the numbers mentally, then note the guessed answer in the included log chart. Check the answer by using the machine’s links and pointers. The Multiplication Machine is a useful study table accessory for kids, helping to improve mental multiplication and building skills, all while having fun! Decorate the machine with your own paints and markers and make it unique!
The laser-cut wood set can be built from scratch in an hour or less. Full-colour, step-by-step instructions are provided to assemble each major piece before combining it all together to create a working machine! Along the way, a "Learner's Log" illustrates important scientific and mechanical principles.
When completed, simple activities or projects to try are included. No glue or adhesives are required; sturdy wooden fasteners and rubber-bands are included as necessary, allowing kids an easy, clean building process.
