# Transcript: How to Defeat a Math Troll (Math Tables)

A title reads "TVOKids Presents."

Colourful animated numbers with googly eyes jump around and form the name "Wacky Number Songs."

A song says IT'S THE WACKY WACKY

NUMBER SONGS.

OH YEAH.

A caption reads "With Ava."

Ava stands in a nice bedroom filled with furniture. She is around 12, with two long braids. She wears a striped yellow shirt under a denim overall.

Ava says IF YOU HAD TO THINK ABOUT WHAT

YOUR FEET ARE DOING EVERY TIME

YOU TAKE A STEP, IT WOULD BE

REALLY ANNOYING!

CALCULATING IS A BIT LIKE

WALKING, IT SHOULD COME EASY.

THAT'S WHY MEMORIZING MATH

TABLES IS THE BEST!

KNOW THEM BY HEART AND YOU'LL

FEEL CONFIDENT TO TAKE ON ANY

MATH PROBLEM.

Ava appears outside a castle wearing a pink hat.

Ava says MEMORIZE MATH TABLES LIKE A

SONG.

AND YOU WON'T GO WRONG!

YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN A MATH TROLL

MIGHT COME ALONG!

A Troll with a bead and a stick says TO GET THROUGH

MY GATE,

YOU MUST KNOW

THE MULTIPLICATION

TABLE OF EIGHT.

Ava says I'VE MEMORIZED THAT, SO I'LL BE

GREAT!

She sings 8 TIMES 1 EQUALS EIGHT.

THAT'S EASIEST TO CALCULATE.

8 TIMES 2 EQUALS SIXTEEN.

I DON'T NEED A

COUNTING MACHINE.

8 TIMES 3 EQUALS

TWENTY-FOUR.

I KNOW MY TABLES SO IT'S NOT A

CHORE.

The Troll says BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW STILL

MORE.

IF YOU WANT ME

TO OPEN THIS DOOR!

She says NO PROBLEM!

She sings 8 TIMES 4 EQUALS THIRTY-TWO.

I MEMORIZE, THAT'S

WHAT I DO.

8 TIMES 5 EQUALS FORTY.

I LEARN BY HEART, IT IS THE KEY!

48, 56, 64, 72, 80.

The Troll says GRRR!

I REALLY DON'T WANT

TO LET YOU

THROUGH.

SO NOW DIVISION'S

WHAT YOU'LL

HAVE TO DO!

Ava says DON'T BOTHER, TROLL.

I'VE MEMORIZED THOSE TOO!

I KNOW THAT 64 DIVIDED BY 8

EQUALS EIGHT.

The Troll says ARGH!

Ava sings LEARNING BY HEART OPENED THE

GATE!

(laughs)

The song ends.

Ava says MEMORIZING MATH TABLES MAKES

SOLVING AN EQUATION IN YOUR HEAD

MUCH QUICKER THAN USING YOUR

FINGERS.

THAT WAY YOU HAVE THE ANSWERS

WHEN YOU NEED THEM.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU MIGHT

RUN INTO A MATH TROLL!

She thumbs up.

(roaring)

She gets scared.
