Dublin Mum and Son team publish magic formula for learning times tables


13-02-2012 10:00

Nine year old Harry Moraghan never found maths easy. Then he discovered he REALLY hated it when it came to learning multiplication tables.


So Harry’s mum invented an ingenious way of remembering his tables by using rhymes and pictures. In TWO WEEKS Harry had all his multiplication tables down pat.


Soon after, Harry’s teacher gave the class a test. Harry finished it in five minutes and got every question right! News of Harry’s Magic Tables spread like wildfire in his school. In no time, the book was shared with some lucky classmates, friends, cousins, and eventually complete strangers too!


Soon Harry’s Mum could hardly keep up with the requests for Harry’s magic formula. While Stephanie was out one evening, Harry and his grandfather sent the manuscript for Harry’s Magic Tables to a number of publishers. Gill Education primary schools publisher Jonathan Saint acquired the book and the rest is history - well maths, actually!

 

Harry’s Magic Tables in published by Gill Books on 17 February, priced at €6.99.
