Who said learning multiplication has to be boring? By turning math into a game, you are more likely to remember what you are doing.
The steps for adding fractions can be very easy if the problem is set up properly. The fraction worksheets on this page have examples of problems that illustrate increasing levels of difficulty to build the skills needed to tackle any kind of fraction addition problem.
I have seen a lot of kids quickly pass off their 2’s, 5’s, and 10’s. These tables have an obvious pattern and are much easier to learn. Then there is a serious slow down as kids hit the 3’s, 4’s, and 6’s. By the time they get to the 7’s, 8’s, and 9’s they’ve decided that multiplication is way too hard, and math isn’t their thing.
During 1st grade, children will then learn addition and subtraction facts, two-digit numbers, some adding and subtracting with two-digit numbers, and some basics of measuring, time and money.
