Knowing multiplication facts is helpful not only in academics; we continuously use multiplication in our daily lives too. Just like learning to walk before you’ll run, learning multiplication and familiarizing yourself with numbers are building blocks for other math topics taught in school – such as division, long multiplication, fractions and algebra.
Mastering the basic math facts develops automaticity in kids. Automaticity is the ability to do things without occupying the mind with the low level details that are required; this is regularly the result of consistent learning, repetition, and practice. For instance, an experienced cyclist does not have to pay attention to turning the pedals, balancing, and holding on to the handlebars. Instead, those processes are automatic and the cyclist can concentrate on watching the road, the traffic, and other surroundings.
Until students have developed sufficient sensory-cognitive tools supporting access to symbolic memory, they will be unable to image, store or retrieve the entire basic facts with automaticity. Subsequently, students need a comprehensive, developmental, and multi-sensory structured system for developing automaticity with the facts.
