### Preparation

### Presentation

- Directress selects a work card, e.g 3 times table.
- Directress shows the child how to slot in the small 3 card in the slot provided on the board.
- The first question is 1x3.
- The red counter is placed on the board and then she counts out 3 beads as she places them on the board under the counter.
- The answer to 1x3 is 3.
- Directress shows the child where to record the answer.
- The next question is 2x3.
- So, she moves the red counter to 2.
- Then she proceeds to count 3 beads as she places them on the board.
- The total number of beads on the board is now 6.
- Hence, 2x3=6.
- Directress continues to work through the work card.

### Control Of Error

The numbers on top of the board and the card placed on the side control the table being worked. The Summary of Multiplication table acts as a control for the child to check his multiplication sum cards.
