### Multiplication Games

Now that all of Mrs. Yollis' students understand the concept of mutiplication, it is time to memorize the facts!

Games were played in class to help with the memorization.

In addition, students play games at home on Mrs. Yollis' website.

Have you mastered the facts?
Do you have any tricks to help with memorization?

3. Dear Sugarcube1230,

Thanks for leaving such a great comment! We appreciate all of your support!

I love our rug, too. :-) Not only is it colorful, it is also a learning tool. If you look closely, there is a clock face, numbers, geometric shapes... It really is great!

We hope we hear from you again, and maybe from some other middle school students!

From,
Mrs. Yollis' Class

4. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

I have mastered the multiplication facts. No, I don't have any memorization tricks for multiplication. Also I always play multiplication games on you website. Have you mastered the facts?

5. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

It was really fun playing the multiplication games, and to answer your question, yes, I did master the facts, and I do have a good way of memorizing them. Just make flash cards of the ones you don't know, and then have your mom or dad teach you one or two a day. After you have done that, ask whoever that told you them to ask you randomly during the day.
