Do you have your child memorize math facts? I think I asked this question a looooong time ago, but I'm still torn on the matter. Honestly, I don't even have all my math facts memorized, and if you ask me to count by 6's, or 7's, or 8's, etc, I will stumble over it. Is it enough to just know how to come up with the answer? Why do they have to actually have them memorized? My oldest is in private school and he's been struggling over learning to count by 3s. I understand that it helps when he's trying to figure out what 3 x 4 is. But I hate them SO much and he does too. I'm just trying to decide if it's something I'll continue when he's home for 3rd grade next year, and if it's something I'll do with my soon to be 1st grader whose homeschooled.
