When (general grade level) do kids learn simple multiplication and division? By simple I mean harder than just 2x2. More Like 12 x 6. Or 26 x 4. Knowing how to "carry the one". Division being like 9 divided by 3. Or 16 divided by 4.

Third or fourth grade, depending on the school and area you live.

My daughter started multiplication in second grade. They got as far as learning what multiplication means and numbers up to 10 like 10x8 ect.
I like that her teacher actually spend a lot of time explaining instead of just making them memorize facts.

 depends on the kid and when they are ready is how I do it we homeschool. The public schools start that in 3rd grade and they dont "carry the one" around here in public school anymore with math programs.

1st grade for basic (2x2), 2nd grade with larger numbers, but they learn in class using the lattice method, I teach them the traditional way at home when helping with homework.

I don't think they are behind until they are competing 4th grade and don't have a good grasp of 2 digit multiplication.
