1. How does this download? I cannot find any way of working with it! It looks like it would be great! I am using a windows desktop.

  2. Never mind! I just downloaded it, opened it, saved it and bam…I can now use it with my kids.

    Thanks again, this is awesome!!!!!!

  3. Hi Steve,
    I am also having trouble with this document. When I click on a number it closes. Any suggestions? I have downloaded it multiple time on different days.

    1. Hi, Mary Sue. If you’ve gone to slide show and view show in PowerPoint the document should be play and be ready to go. Are you viewing it in PowerPoint, or in a different program?

  4. I also downloaded the chart but I can’t manipulate it or save it. I would love to have it in PPT format. Thank you so much! I especially like the fractional relationships.

    1. Hi, Johna. Thank you for downloading the chart. I hope it will be useful to you. What are you hoping to do in terms of manipulating it? Are you wanting to edit the numbers?

  5. Hi Steve, I downloaded the file, but when I click on it, it simply closes. Any suggestions? I use MacBook Pro with Microsoft Office 2011 fully functional on it.

    1. Be sure that the slide is playing in PPT, then click first on the multiplication symbol on the chart and see if that clears it up.

  6. I came to your blog via linked in and looked at imposter numbers and this animated tables. I look forward to seeing much more. Thank you so much for your insight, creativity and generosity. A real gift to Maths teachers. I will certainly be telling others about this wonderful blog.

    1. Thanks, Elaine. I have many more ideas to share, and hearing that they are being used motivates me to post them soon! Thank you for taking the time to comment!

  7. Thanks for this great tool! We are will into our facts and always looking for kids to see patterns easily. Can’t wait to add this to our math tools in our folders on the ipads! (3rd Grade)

    1. Hi, Gina. This is great to hear! Keep up the pattern searching. That is so very important, and it is also really fun to find new patterns that are hiding in the table. They are abundant! Nice job to you and your students! I’m glad it will be a helpful resource.

  8. Hi Steve – Very cool! Thank you for sharing and making it available. When I clicked to download it came as .ppsx file and it would open, but when I clicked anything on the multiplication chart it would either do nothing or close. Do you have it in .pptx by chance as well? (Side note: I have a mac). Maybe it is ‘user’ error. But either way, really great tool! If I can get it to work I will share it with my tutors and students right away.

    1. Hi, Laura. I tried it out on a mac, and I think it will work. Start by first clicking the multiplication symbol to clear the chart and then click on any factor. If you click outside of the table it will close the pps. Try it and let me know how it works.

    2. Hi! I know this is an old post, so maybe you’ve worked it out by now. I was having the same problem on my Mac. The first step you need to do is click on the top left x button to clear the chart. Then you just click on the table number (in yellow) to highlight what table group you want to show eg click on the yellow 3. You can only click on the yellow numbers or the x to clear, otherwise it will close.

      1. Thanks for providing this explanation. That’s exactly right. If you click in any other place it will “advance” the slide to the end of the presentation. Clicking on the × symbol and the factors will allow you to continue working within the same slide. I really appreciate your sharing this solution.

    1. Hi, Deb. Try clicking on the multiplication symbol immediately after opening the chart. It should clear each time you click on it. Let me know how it works.

  9. I am hoping my daughter will use this to speed up her basic facts so that problem solving will be easier for her.

    1. Hi, Anita. I hope it will be helpful. Basic facts are so very important. I’m glad it will be useful!

    1. Maggie, I don’t know the answer. Sorry. I do think, though, that without PowerPoint it should work by simply using a ppt viewer.

  10. This is amazing! I am a math interventionist and my students loved finding patterns on the hundred chart. I am going to try this with them! Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Hi, Travis. I don’t know the answer because I haven’t worked with Keynote. I think you can use a PPT viewer on nearly any device and it should work. I have so much to learn, though, which is partly why I am diving into this.
