Practice makes perfect! It's an old cliche, but when it comes to memorization of multiplication facts - it's true! A couple weeks ago, students brought home fact triangles. I hope you are still using those on a regular basis. A little practice every day aids in memory. You wouldn't let your child show up for the recital or ball game without attending the practices. The same holds true for math class. If you want to get better at math, you have to put in the time practicing. Encourage your child to work on memorizing the basic facts of multiplication. Practice makes perfect!
