Do you struggle with your times tables?

Well, get ready! Because you’re about

to smash that problem for good

with something completely new

that you’ve never seen before!

You won’t find anything

like this anywhere else!

I’m going to be walking

you right through my simple

3-step process and each

of my picture-stories,

to show you exactly how

every one of them works.

You can use these to solve

all of the basic problems

in all of your times tables

but you’ll also discover

how to use them to go way beyond

those problems and solve much

larger multiplications

in your head too.

Hello Internet friends! I’m Leigh Cook,

the guy they call the Numba Ninja!

So, this video is in response to a

question from Jazzmean251 who asked:

My son gets so upset with times tables

and it’s really holding him back.

I hated these when I was at school but it’s

even worse watching him suffer like this.

When he goes to bed in tears I end up

crying too coz I really feel his pain.

I’ve seen some of your videos and your approach

looks like it could really work for him

but I don’t know where to get started.

Please can you help?

Thanks Jazzmean. I know that pain, and

this video is going to really help you.

Try watching this video with your son.

So, here we go. This is how it works.

It’s a simple three-step process.

The first step with any multiplication is to

spot the fastest key to solving the problem.

It’ll be one of the numbers in the

problem or the x in the middle.

My system teaches how to do that easily.

The second step is to link the key you chose

to its special picture, which as

you’ll see is really easy too.

And lastly, you just use the story related

to the picture to get quickly and easily to

the answer. Now, if you’ve

not already seen any of my

videos about those simple picture stories, be

sure to check those out, either right here

on this channel or the more detailed

ones over on my numba.ninja website.

You’ll see how, with just a few stories

you can multiply many problems.

And I’m not just talking

about those up to 12 x 12.

You can use these for many

problems way beyond that!

Let me show you some examples.

Let’s start with 10 x 9.

You’ll learn it’s much quicker to multiply

by 10 than by 9 so we choose 10 as the key.

Now, the picture for 10 is a snail. Can

you see how that snail looks like a 10?

Well, all of my pictures

have an easy link like that.

Next we play the snail story in our heads

using the other part of the problem, the 9.

So, in our story, the 9 is

a snail who lost his shell,

so we just need to pop one on. We pop

a zero on the end to make 9-0. Ninety.

That’s our answer! Of course, the

snail works for any whole number,

as large as you like. For

another example let’s try 11 x 12.

You’ll learn that 11 is the fastest key here,

as the 11 story is quicker than the 12 story.

The picture for the 11s is the sandwich.

Do you see how that sandwich looks like an 11?

Like I said, there’s always

an easy link like that.

And so for step 3, the

story we run in our mind

is to make a sandwich using the

other part of the problem, the 12.

It goes like this. We put the

1 and 2 on the slices and then,

for a filling, we add 1

and 2 together to get 3.

So we have 1-3-2, our answer is 132! If you’ve

ever tried to memorize the 11 times table

then you may have thought that

11 x 12 was hard to memorize.

But you’ve just seen why you

don’t even need to remember it.

And yes, it’ll work for 11 x 11 as well.

You break the two 1s apart and you add them

together to make a filling

of 2, giving you 1-2-1, 121.

In fact, it’ll do a whole lot more too!

You see, most of those kids at the top of

your class may have no problem remembering

those answers up to 12 x 11, but they’re

often stumped by problems like, say 11 x 53,

which you could now work out in a flash

in your head, even if you never saw

that problem before in your life!

In step 1 you’d spot that 11 is the key.

In step 2 you’d remember that the 11 looks

like a sandwich. And in step 3

you’d simply make a sandwich

using the 5 and 3 on those two slices of bread.

The story leads you to simply create the filling

to put in the middle by adding

those two numbers together.

Go on! Why don’t you see if you can do that

right now, and pop your final answer down

in the comments below! And don’t

cheat! I mean feel free to check

your answer on a calculator after you’ve done

this in your head, but notice how much longer

it’ll take you to do that, compared to just

looking at the problem and calling out the answer!

You see, running up

these three simple steps

is quicker to do than fetching your

calculator to work it out for you!

Of course, you can also make a sandwich very

easily with those smaller numbers up to nine.

The easiest way to think about those is to

just put that number on both slices of bread

and forget about making a filling.

It doesn’t really matter with any

of these problems if you don’t choose the

fastest key, as you’ll still

get the right answer anyhow.

But I show you how to choose the fastest

key, as you’ll get to that answer quicker!

For example, you’ve seen how the snail works

for 10s and how the sandwich works for 11s,

so which one would you use

if you had to do 10 x 11?

Would you find it faster to do that snail

story, and put a zero on the end of 11

to get to 110? Or would it

be faster to make a sandwich,

with 1 and 0 on those two slices and then adding

them together to put another 1 in the filling?

You see, you still get

to 110, but the snail

was much faster. Now we’ve looked

at the 10s and 11s just so you can

see how my system works. And it’s

just as easy to use this system with

those so-called harder tables too, like

the 6s, 7s and 8s, which we’ll be looking

at next. But before I move

on to those I want you to

fully grasp how these 3 simple

steps make my system unique.

You see if you’re trying to memorize answers,

you’re trying to jump straight from the problem

to the answer by memory. And that

only works after you’ve memorized

all those answers. With this system,

you just take those 3 simple steps

each time and they lead you straight

to the answer, even for problems you’ve never

handled before. And then, for the

ones that you keep coming across,

you end up remembering a

lot of the answers anyhow!

So this is a great way to get those answers

into your head quickly and easily, so that

you can leap up those steps if you want to,

but this way, you’ll always have those steps

to fall back on in case you’re not

completely sure of your answer.

Do you see how this makes it really easy for

you to master these problems without having to

memorize those dreadful tables?

So far I’ve shown you my 3 simple

steps and 2 of my picture-stories.

That gives you a quick overview

of how my system works.

And if you’re still watching right now, you’re

probably wondering how this would work for

some of those tables that are

much harder than the 10s and 11s.

So, we’re going to dive right into those.

Up next, I’m going to show you how to use

my musical note picture-story

when multiplying by six!

Then we’ll have a look at some of those other

nasty tables, like the 7s and 8s which many

people dread, but you’ll be amazed at how

easy all of these are with this system!

I’ll pop a link to that next part of this

video series somewhere on this screen at the

end, as soon as it’s ready, but if you’re

watching this video before that link shows up,

it’s because that video’s still being edited

which would mean it’s not quite ready for

you yet. But be patient.

I’ll be uploading that next

part very soon, as it’s the very next one in

this video series I’ve been recording for you.

So be sure to subscribe and

hit that notification bell,

to be alerted as soon as it goes live.

Do you see how simple and powerful

these steps and stories are?

You may have come across some methods like

this sandwich before but this is the first

time you’ll see a complete set of pictures

that cover the whole of your times tables

and beyond. And it’s also

the first time you’ll find a

system that uses these 3 simple steps to help

you quickly choose which story to run with.

Now you’ve only seen a couple of those picture-stories

so far, and the rest are short and sweet just

like these two. Can you see

yourself using a system like this

to get really good at multiplication, without

all the effort it takes to memorize those tables?

And remember, you can

use these to solve all

of the basic problems in all of your times

tables but you’ll also discover how to use

them to go way beyond those problems and solve

much larger multiplications in your head too.

So, what’s coming up? I’m going

to be showing you how to crush any

multiplication up to 12 x 12 without memorizing

any of those terrible tables of answers,

so you can kick that problem

right out of the park for good.

I’m going to show you how to multiply way

beyond 12 x 12 in your head using the exact

same system. I’m going to

be walking you right through

my simple 3-step process and each of my

picture-stories, to show you exactly how

every one of them works. And I’ll

be telling you how you can get to

play my Numba Ninja Game with me

right here on YouTube, for free,

during some live-stream

coaching sessions.

I’m super excited about this

because I get a real kick out of

helping people like you. I’m just

really excited about this opportunity

for you to get really good with numbers; and

I’m excited to be here for you; to be able to

help you out like this. So that you

can become a Numba Ninja yourself!
