Memorize in Minutes is a creative and visual way to begin the process of memorizing one's multiplication tables. Bringing an abstract number sentence such as 8 X 7 and transforming it into a visual picture that can be more readily, by some learners, maintained in short term memory until successfully and automatically retained in one's long term memory. My 8 year old (second grader) has mastered about three or four multiplication facts per evening. We review select facts/stories in the car on our drive to school or at dinner (which engages older siblings as well). She feels successful and confident in her ability to master this new skill, which promotes a willingness to engage in homework and take risks answering questions at school. Recognizing that all kids learn differently, and knowing that our visual sense is our most efficient, I encourage parents to consider this option when confronted with the task of multiplication fact memorization.

This is not math! If you want students to learn math instead of memorizing things without any clue about why or how they connect, don't use this!
