The Power of Digital Roots

Increase children’s math computation proficiency by introducing digital roots! “The Power of Digital Roots” is a teacher informational guide developed for those who teach upper to middle elementary school mathematics. Digital Roots offer children some great opportunities for finding patterns, and that multiplication tables can be reinforced as well as their ability to create some visual patterns. Not to mention the ability to check their math computations be it adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing more efficiently.

We provide the rationale for teaching our students Digital Roots. I can tell you that it has been my experience in the classroom that children tend to be much more ‘motivated’ when checking their math computations, as opposed to simply reworking the entire problem over again.

The following is a list of topics that are discussed:

  • How to find the Digital Root of a number
  • Finding the Digital Root of two-digit numbers
  • Mathematical operations applying Digital Roots

This zip file contains a folder with 2 files: (1) The Power of Digital Roots Instructional Guide (color version) & (2) The Power of Digital Roots Instructional Guide (black & white version). Please make sure that you have the applicable software for downloading this resource. Thank you so much for your purchase.
