Many thanks to the two Bills for their information about the NCTM Standards Web Sites. Now everyone on this list has access to the Standards. No excuse for not even "peeking" at them!
Does anyone out there have some ideas about how to work with a rising fifth grader who doesn't know his tables. I've been working with skip counting, Multiplication Rock, cards with factors in the corners, and all the little tricks I know (nines). I am sure the young man has some kind of math dysfunction. However, I am not a specialist. So, I know that there are many out there lurking that could help me. Thanks in advance. --
