My daughter said that her class came up with a list of strategies to learn multiplication. In fact, her friend Helena came up with the x8 trick. Learning math facts seems to work best when it gets presented different ways; this is the logical reasoning method. The post I refer to throughout on Tips and Tricks uses songs; another great way to go. We do flashcards and mnemonics; do you have any good ones for facts? The only one I know is 8 x 8: I ate and I ate ’til I threw up on the floor, so 8 times 8 is 64! It works so well that my youngest knew 8 x 8 at age 3 but just that one one because he finds gross humor particularly funny. If you have any other tricks or tips, please share!
