The job of memorizing 156 math facts is daunting for many if not most kids, but more importantly, our age-old practice of starting the kids out at 0x0 and marching in order through 12x12 is a terribly inefficient waste of parent, teacher, and student time. That's where this book shines. Dr. Seltzer tears the facts down into easily digested bites, creating a logically ordered, daily mix of the "easy facts" and the hard ones. In doing so, he shows students that there are really only 50 or so facts that kids have to learn to attain functional competence with the "times tables". This is the chief difference between Dr. Seltzer's approach and the "the old fashioned way".

Personally, I did learn the facts through hours and hours of repetition, endless writing of the facts, interminable recitation of the tables, and Sisyphean sessions with flashcards. In the beginning, there were offers of rewards for each of the tables I learned. In the end, threats of increasingly dire punishment for my refusal to practice further left both my mother and me in tears. The trauma put me off mathematics for years. It convinced me, my parents, and a series of school counselors that I was simply not "wired" for mathematics. It was only by the narrowest of fortune that an idealistic student teacher, during my junior year of high school, noticed that I had some innate math ability, an observation which, through a subsequently byzantine course of events, lead me to eventually become a math teacher myself.

If you are a parent and your child is struggling to master the multiplication facts, please try this approach. If you are a teacher and you are tasked with teaching the multiplication facts, you will find that this approach will work for many different kinds of learners.

Absolutely love this method. I've used it with four children so far, all of whom were taught the traditional way in school. They all had gaps and this quick refresher with fast fun lessons was perfect! Not overwhelming!

I use this in my 3rd grade classroom to reinforce fluency with facts. I white out and change it to be done over 7 weeks. Works great.

This isn't a mind-blowing technique that makes it oh-so-easy to get multiplication facts memorized. But, my son was struggling and this gave us a clear path to follow and made it less overwhelming. You could get the same results on your own by breaking it down, but this is a road-map of sorts to help you out and set daily goals.

Maybe not in 7 days though... We got it to review the multiplication facts because my daughter is struggling to pass the timed test. You'll need to copy it if you want to use it more than once. Lots of worksheets to do.

This method provides a logical and less-daunting order for memorizing multiplication facts than the traditional way. The number of days it takes to memorize the facts will depend on the memorization ability of the child, but will certainly be less than with the traditional method. The greatest value is in the order of memorization; it is broken down into small steps each day, making the memorization less difficult. Additionally, the practice sheets are a good resource.

My children understand how and why to multiply. That is key. They must know and understand this and be able to demonstrate it with manipulatives prior to using this book. But then this book breaks down the very few facts to memorize nicely. Quick and easy and makes sense. No need to 'memorize' every list by 2's etc etc. zeros and ones don't need memorization. And half the remaining facts are simply the reverse (ie a x b = b x a). This method has them practice and memorize about 8 per day and viola! Like it so much I am getting the addition one too for my younger children.
