Open up your hands like a book. Number your fingers 1-10  and hold identical  fingers up to show an 11, while tucking the rest under in your fist. Say the sum out loud.

1 + 10 = 11
10 +  1= 11
11 - 1 = 10

2+ 9 = 11
9 + 2 = 11
11- 2 = 9
11- 9 =2
3 + 8 = 11
8 + 3 =11
11- 3 = 8
11- 8 = 3
4 + 7 = 11
7 + 4 =11
11- 4 = 7
11- 7 = 4

When Frances More visits schools to teach the students and teachers about her amazing Fingerithmatic Multi Sensory system, she also demonstrates this trick to children to show them how wonderful the fingers are at mathematics. 
You will notice how simple this trick is and you will want to try it out on all your friends too.

However, this trick is nothing at all like Fingerithmatic, which is even more amazing and will have you talking about it for weeks and years to come!!

Frances will come to your child's school and go from classroom to classroom teaching a times tables such as the 3 times tables or 7 times tables and within about 10 minutes will be teaching long multiplication, division, fractions, both improper and equivalent using the times table that had just been taught. Then the students are shown how to learn their 2's and 4's or their 6's and 8's. 
Then the simplicity of the 9's and 99's and 999's are shown and following this if there is still time addition and subtraction or percentages and decimals.
After school parents are invited to the school library or hall for a small fee to learn this concept for themselves and in order to understand how it will change the lives of their children.

Teachers are taught these and many more mathematical processes during their professional development program. 

Take the initiative and call your school now!
