BasicFactsWhy is there a need for kids to know times tables facts with their easy access to technology to answer questions? Do kids really need to rote learn times tables?  Isn’t this just ‘old school’?

Rote learning is often frowned upon in modern education – understandably in most subjects – however with elementary mathematics some rote learning is essential. Good basic number skills and mental arithmetic ability will remain a powerful tool to have that kids will use every day of their lives. I’ve found a good website for practising times tables for both kids and adults.
