Why bother memorizing the multiplication table?

Does doing math frustrate you? Do you fumble with the calculator when others seem to see the answer right away?

To do well in math, you must memorize your multiplication table up to 12×12 (15×15 is even better). Otherwise, you won’t be able to spot patterns as you learn higher levels of math. Think about it. Your class is writing a test. Question three has 10 steps to find the answer using a calculator but if you know your multiplication table, you can spot the shortcuts and finish it in four steps. That saves you time. I guarantee it’ll make math easier for you!
