Hi to all:
Just wondering how teachers feel about children learning their multiplication, division, addition, and subtract facts by wrote?
Are students encouraged in school to learn them by wrote, or are teachers allowing children to count on the fingers and calculators these days?
This is not a loaded question. I'm trying to finish a project with encourages rote learning using orals methods and the computer.
Thanks,
