I think the first person to find a truly easy way to remember multiplication tables could make a fortune. Here are two suggestions for learning times tables: - make rectangles out of bingo chips (or rows of anything else) 2 times 5 would look like * * * * * * * * * * or * * * * * * * * * * - think about multiples. When you recite lists of numbers like 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18.... do you know that you're actually saying? 3 times 1, 3 times 2, 3 times 3, and so on? Have you thought of any other good ways to remember multiplication tables? Please let us know. -Doctor Jodi, The Math Forum
