I know that everything starts out as nothing, but then I’m thinking why can’t I do it without zero. When you do do it without zero you get the wrong answer.

A student who has rote understanding of their times tables will see within my Multiplying Integers lessons that multiplication is repeated addition… a student lacking basic multiplication skills usually cannot go beyond the ‘rules’ since the multiplication itself is a neuron-taxing challenge to them. You need an understanding of basic skills before you can move on to more challenging tasks. […]

It’s so important to help students understand the meaning behind the rules. This can be quite challenging with multiplying integers, but your counter model definitely helps.
