    Here's an easier way to accomplish this array idea.

    Picture a standard multiplication chart set up, numbers 1-10 across the top and down the left side, but instead of having the numbers filled in down below it's just one circle in place of the number. Then you take an index card and line it up next to each multiplicand. Say, 9*3. So you put one index card vertically next to 9 on top and below 3 horizontally. Ta-da, you now see 3 sets 9.

    Wouldnt this accomplish the same thing without using a whole wall and eliminating the confusing sea creatures?

      Yes! That is why I do not understand why they chose multiple animals!

        Just to add, the purpose of the pdf shared on the Simply Classical post is to avoid making a wall chart. I print them on standard paper and laminate them, so they are small and easy to use at the dining table. I can see the value of showing the array and trust R&S in their visuals. There are a lot of pages, but you're only working from one at a time.

        I agree, it may not be necessary, but I've learned the hard way to follow the teacher manual to avoid dealing with gaps in understanding later.
