When it comes to multiplication, finger tricks are very useful tools, and they are fun! This trick is for multiplication tables of 6, 7, 8, and 9. When you need to find an answer quickly, finger tricks can save the day.
One of the biggest problems is that there are so many different concepts and equations in algebra and in order to be successful you have to understand the entirety of it or you will not be able to figure out which procedure to use. You learned the order of operations years ago and that is one key tool for algebra. This tool allows you to understand which process happens first and so on. PEMDAS is a very valuable tool.
