Check the quality of the learned randomly. Otherwise, only the results in order to postpone the child's memory. If you change the order of the kid can simply say "automatically", without realizing that the factors are not the same. There is the same as when listening to the same list of tunes when one song ends, the next is already remembered "mechanically" even if you change the order. Do not let the memory of the child to play with him the same joke - learn the multiplication table randomly. Repeat the multiplication table up until the baby is at once will not give an answer to this question.

Tell your child how you were taught in his time, inspired him to study.

And here's some interesting things about the multiplication of the digitnine. For training you can use your fingers. Put both hands on the book, opened his fingers like a fan. Ask a question, for example, 6x9. Then find the finger number six, counting from the left to the right little finger. On the left side will be tens of sixth finger, that is, fifty. The remaining right hand fingers define the number of units, i.e., four. It turned fifty-four.

Mechanical memory, which allows you to teachheart without much understanding of the texts and character sets, very developed at the age of eight or nine years. But do not look for it. Try to keep the child realize fully what it says or believes, but did not give an answer, like a machine. This approach will develop the child's thinking, and not only its mechanical memory. The concepts and phenomena that are not understood, are forgotten over time, but the multiplication table is useful throughout life.

Some children behind in mechanical memorythe development of emotional and imaginative. For these children, it is best to use an associative learning method. For this purpose it is necessary to cut out a few cards and draw or paste pictures on them, which are associated in a child with a certain number. Next, you need to come up with a story that will characterize the multiplication table. During the story the kid will be easier to get used to the "dry" figures and numbers.

Some child psychologists and educators recommendstart learning the multiplication table from the end, not the beginning. This method saves time, because, when you come to the middle of the table, the second half is already known.

In addition, supported by the results and exampleslife pictures. For example, the spread on candy or apples table. The child is much easier to remember and understand what he sees and can touch. Often the children whom parents taught "tactile" method to quickly understand and memorize the multiplication table.

Do not apply to study multiplication tablestoo zealously. Of course, knowledge is very necessary, but every child is different. If the neighbor's kid already knows the multiplication tables by heart, but your daughter has mastered only two columns, you should not blame her in this and "put on the kind of" her poor academic performance. Over time, children acquire knowledge.
