Abstract
Here are some questions which arise while teaching Multiplication: Should children memorise the multiplication tables? What is an easy and convenient way of modeling multiplication? Is it enough if one only teaches the procedure of multiplication? Perhaps answers to these questions can be found if we reflect on the importance we give to construction of knowledge. If we see that children must understand how facts are derived, how procedures are derived and how concepts can be visualized, then our approach will be dictated by that understanding.
