Never underestimate how much a visual representation of what can otherwise appear to be an abstract concept can help children learn.
What it is about memorizing multiplication tables that make my kids throw their pencil across the room and shout, “I hate math?” It is because, unlike spelling or vocabulary, numbers don’t create pictures for us. Multiplication tables are strings of seemingly random numbers that our children are expected to not only remember, but keep in order and in context with the numbers they are multiplying by.
Use mnemonics and silly stories to help you remember. A mnemonic is a special technique or learning device that helps you remember something. Stories like Times Tales can help you memorize your multiplication facts by associating the numbers with silly characters and stories. Phrases like 5 6 7 8, 56 equals 7 times 8 are also useful. There are many ways to memorize things, you just need to find the way that works best for you.
