Whats the best way for math challenged kids and adults to memorize times tables?I have math discalculie and so does my youngest. This is so embarrasing. I also have trouble adding fast.

  • I just got a Multiplication Rock cd and loaded it on my kid's MP3 player.
    You can google Multiplication Rock, and there's a free set through Schoolhouse Rock.

    Otherwise, there are a lot of "tricks." For example, all the answers to the 9's, the digits add up to 9. (27, 36, 45, 54, etc.)
    If you learn the 3's, then the 6's are just double those. Same with 4's and 8's.
    I recommend just doing 5 facts a night, over and over, and then the next night, add 5 new, but review the first 5, etc.

  • Honestly, how many times in life do you use multiplication. I suck at math and mangage just fine. My cell phone has a calcualtor.

I just want math to be something I can get through instead of running from it... Even if it takes me 10 yrs
