• In the 3rd or 4th grade.
• Yes, we started learning the basics in grade three.
• Yes. In the 4th grade. I remember memorizing them.
• no! and it fucked up my math skills for life.
• Yep... 3rd grade, for most of them, if I remember correctly.
• Yes we learned to chant them in Kindergarten. one of the best lessons ever. Once learned never forgotten.
• No, my older sister taught them to me at home before we studied them in school.
• Yepp :) 3rd, 4th, 5th I believe
• No I still dont know them
• Yeah, I think it was 4th grade.
• Yep. 8 was my favourite.
• No, I learned them at the kitchen table, one set a night, under pain of spanking if I couldn't recite them by bedtime. I could have learned them at school, but it would have been too easy to just pay attention.
• I only got as far as the tune - dah di dah di dah, dah di dah di dah. I honestly never learned them but everybody else did.
• I sure did.
• yea, 2nd grade
• Some of them. My mother was used to the European way of schooling so she wanted me to be prepared. So I entered kindergarten knowing my lower times tables. Little did she know that in USA school starts out just being play time and little learning. So I knew how to read very well and arithmetic from the start:-)
• Yup in grade 3. I still remember the actual table sheet we were given lol, in yellow. And memorizing it in a singsong way. It's still embedded in my head and always will be :P
• I learned the times table at my grandmother's kitchen table. She drilled it into me my threatening to spank me each time I got an equation wrong.
• Yup. Ever notice all multiples of nine, add up to nine, when reduced to one number? Or that any single digit multiplier of nine when reduced by one, and the number added to it to make nine, is the answer? Like 7x9 reduce the 7 by 1 to get 6, 6+3 makes nine, 63. I noticed this in grade school; it helped if my memory failed me. I heard that.. I was not a weird kid! Ha!
• my daughter just got through with an entire packet of times problems. It was about 25 pages long!!!
• Yeah. It was a requirement.
• I learned most of them during 2nd and 3rd grade
• Yes, in elementary school.
• I learned them at home so I could recite them at school. I just learned one to nine. my dad learned one to twenty five. he said it was very helpful knowledge. twenty five squared is 625. thats about it for me.
• there's actually an easier way to multiply 9:P look at your fingers. let's start from left to right. your left pinky finger is 1, your left ring finger is 2 then so on and so forth. your base number is 9 and it should just be on your head and whatever number you multiply 9 by, you fold that finger. the numbers on the left side of the finger that you fold will be TENS and to the right of that is ONES. 9 x 1 = 0 & 9 = 09 9 x 2 = 1 & 8 = 18 9 x 3 = 2 & 7 = 27 9 x 4 = 3 & 6 = 36 etc.....
• yep! i just can't remember the x4's or the x6's everything else i remember perfectly :)
• NO
• NO
• My mother tried to teach me it. Never panned out I still don't have it memorized. I'm now a Freshman Math Major :)
• Yes in the early seventies. Up to the 15 times table
• Yes. We did a times tables test every day. I got most of them right but I could never get the 7X and 8X tables right any time. That has certainly changed since I came to high school 5 years ago.
• No, my Mom taught me at home, after school. She was relentless. I always felt I had a big advantage because my Mom took the time to make sure I knew my times tables. Thanks, Mom!!
• Yes.
• no.. i made em lol yes
• I moved from a school that did them to 10x10, to a school that had taught 12x12. It was traumatic for a while,that I was behind. But I caught up and passed them!
• Yes, I LOVED math and English...my two favorite subjects.
• Well, I don't learn them but keeping them again again I can remember them easily.
• YES
• yes ... it was used as a punishment in Junior High you had to write them down from 1 * 1 to 10 * 10 + 10 cubed for every time you have to do it. I got up to 100 * 100 before i stood up to the teacher.
• My mom taught me well before the 1st grade, keithold. ;-)
• YES
