an admission: I started fifth grade without knowing my multiplication
tables. Now, they teach multiplication in second or third grade. My kid
will already be a leg up on me by age seven. Second, I have a worry
that my daughter will be frustrated by math and will very quickly
decide it’s not for her. That’s why I just bought these Multiplication and division flash cards. They are big, but not unwieldy and printed
on both sides to save in bulk. We plan to get a start on the school
year, so when the teacher first says “two times two,” she won’t be
afraid of hazarding a guess.
