Did you memorize multiplication tables in elementary school?
I won a prize for it.:)
5×5 is 25 5×6 is 30
No I didn't memorize them, I learned how to multiply.
More like tried to
Yeah, but times and methods change.
I was supposed to but my parents didn't put me in school that year. Not home schooled either, we were moving a lot...
Not all of them yet I have to practice I am 11 steel In 5 grade elementary school 😎😒
I wouldn't call it memorization.
OMG. Miserable memories if my mom drilling me with homemade flash cards for hours. Hated it then, grateful ever since. To not know them is a handicap.
Of course. CAME IN HANDY
I tried to memorize them, but wasn't good with numbers. From 3rd grade on it was all downhill with math.
Most of them.
I only got to my 3's tables because i was bumped up a grade. so...ironically i never learned the rest. I do them in my head now or just use a calculator.
I was supposed to memorize them, but I did them in my head instead.
Yep, I was terrible at it and hated it
Yes. It came so easy for me
I didn't memorize the table per se, but I knew how to compute the values in it.
Yes and I still remember them.
Yes and I had a very hard time remembering 8's.
I didn't see the point since I had a calculator. Teachers seem to have been behind the times for a long time. We have the Internet and they're teaching shit like Common Core which tells me that the Government Education Centers are all about agenda.
It was worse in the 70s. We were still taught how to use a slide rule even though we already had calculators.
I grew up in the 80s. I remember getting Apple computers in our school. The old woman that "taught us" didn't have any clue about them.
Yes, I thought that's universally taught.
Yeah, but we had to do tests with 100 multiplication problems in 1 minute in fourth grade. I wasn't fast enough to do it
We have to do that in the 5 grade 😒😰 I'm 11. I'm not fast either
