Multiplication tables

While there is no doubt that knowing the multiplication tables is a useful skill, learning by rote without an understanding of the concept of multiplication and of division is less than useful. Mental maths, which includes multiplication and division, helps learners to form the appropriate concepts.

Many successful mathematicians do not know their tables by rote. However, they do know how to work them out as needed.
