**much, much more****I’m about to launch something new – and I’ll use this blog post as a space to do it.**

**This student workbook will be used to launch something I’ve never seen – but have always wished we all had – which is a set of ongoing, adaptive, and iterative instructional videos that continually empower the teacher who is teaching multiplication while also running in parallel to an actual student workbook that completely prepares everything for the teacher.**

**Essentially, it’s like creating a workbook and then saying, “Now, I’m going to use this book to do everything I can do invest in and empower the teacher.”**

**each student will need their own copy**– the videos will be free for everyone.
