Have her focus on learning them in this order (its easiest): 0's, 1's, 2's, 5's, 10's, 3's, 4's, then the rest. Don't overpractice. Spend 10 minutes every day on this. That's it. But do it everyday. And then keep practicing 5-10 minutes 3 times a week for a year afterwards or so. There are tons of online programs that will make this easier for you and her. Its mostly sheer memorization, with a little bit of pattern recognition. She should be able to do all her multiplication facts, without a second's hesitation, by the end of 3rd/beginning of 4th grade. Helping her with this is one of the singe best things you can do for her math achievement. I see high school kids still trying to work out single digit facts in their head. You might consider putting some flashcards in your purse. Practice on the train, in line at the grocery store.... [ Reply | More ]
