    I really enjoy your Blog and have for some time. I appreciate the care & concern you show for teachers & parents. I am very impressed with your understanding of the importance of teaching tools and how you share them on your Blog. My partners & I have developed a fun, simple, & effective way to teach kids their Multiplication table. It is called Multi-Facts, and it is derived from the popular Sudoku puzzles. We have recently launched an iPad & iPhone app to compliment our website & of course our very popular Multi-Facts book. Multi-Facts was created by an award winning math teacher in California. Multi-Facts puzzles stimulate both sides of the brain by challenging each student to think vertically & horizontally. We understand that knowing your multiplication factors is the foundation of every math concentration from fractions to Calculus and that is why people are so excited about Multi-Facts. We feel that teachers & parents who follow your blog would benefit from hearing about Multi-Facts and we hope that you choose to blog about it.
