Don’t get left behind! To “catch up” or to fly ahead with multiplication fact fluency, get the unique system which uses color cues to memorize the facts. Instead of memorizing 100+ facts, all one needs to know are the memory links between 10 colors and 10 digits. No lengthy or detailed picture-stories, sayings, songs, or tricks--this system provides a research-backed, simple way to memorize the facts. Become a “multiplication fact master” with the !
After years of minimizing the value of multiplication fact memorization in math, the teaching of multiplication fact automaticity is making a comeback! The word “memorize” hasn’t been used in most math curriculums for more than a decade, but now the requirement of memorizing multiplication facts is explicitly stated in the new Common Core State Standards.
OH, AND BY THE WAY…there’s other reasons for memorizing the facts! Having the multiplication facts memorized (automatic recall) streamlines the thinking process which leads to accuracy and efficiency when solving more complex math.

DEFINITION of Multiplication Fact AUTOMATICITY: the ability to give an accurate answer to a multiplication fact spontaneously, without pausing, counting, or adding on. The response is memorized and almost instantaneous.
