Studying Multiplication Tables for Level 1 and 2 Students

PROBLEM: If your child can not learn their Multiplication tables, they are probably studying them  the wrong way.

When a child writes their multiplication tables at least 2X/night, make sure they write the entire fact as one whole-6 X0=0, 6 X 1=6, etc. The level 1 and 2 students usually hate Math due to a lack of success so most of them will write them like this:

6,6,6,6,6,6,6 and then X,X,X,X,X,X and then 0,1,2,3,4 and then write the answers.

There is a connection between writing information and the brain remembering that information but most of them write it in a hurry just to get it done to make the teacher and Mom happy and thus the “6,6,6,6,6,6,6 and then X,X,X,X,X,X and then 0,1,2,3,4 method is used. It is useless for memorization of time tables for those who do not know them. The child should do one fact set until they have it memorized and then move to the next set.
