The Easiest Way to Remember my 5s Times Table
The experience of facing the times table is something most people recall vividly. For some, it fills with dread. For most it brings back memories of struggling with lists of answers, some harder than others. And for very few are those memories pleasant. Yet we far less easily recall the struggles we went through learning some of our other childhood skills.
I am going to suggest that perhaps this is because, with our times table, we went about learning them in an unnecessarily painful and difficult way.
