A common problem for parents is having to do battle with their children when it comes time to practice learning their times tables. Many things have changed in education over the years, but the elementary math facts used in every level of education have remained the same. Many parents throw up their hands in frustration and give up after several failed attempts to force their child into hours of rote memorization. Many parents today learned their multiplication facts through threats and intimidation. Although forcing a child to sit and flip through flashcards for hours on end might achieve the desired end result of memorizing the facts, it can be quite an unpleasant experience for both the parent and the child. A much more productive method of teaching a child is to introduce some type of fun to the scenario. Certainly the child will have to memorize his or her facts, but it does not have to be an uncomfortable learning experience.
Multiplication tables are a great way to break into teaching multiplication. The five times tables and other small numbers prove easier to teach most elementary school students. Students will find it easy to just keep adding another digit to their last result to find the next number in the time tables. By teaching this first, you can get the students in the mood and comfortable with multiplying. The problems may occur, however, once you have reached a higher times tables than five. The trick of simply adding another digit to the last result, to find the next number in the table becomes much more difficult.
