I don't remember when I was first taught multiplication. But I bet it was the 2nd grade. In 3rd grade we were already in the 'let's make them do endless problems over and over every day' mode.

In fact, I'm sure it was the 2nd grade, because I remember having that sheet of paper with the huge multiplication table on it, and thinking I'd never ever be able to memorize that whole thing.

Oh, it was second grade for me, too, but I already knew multiplication at the age of three, so it wasn't hard at all... :P

Vivid memory of your life at age 3 probably isn't something to brag about.

It's interesting... there was a debate on The Brains Trust many years ago about your earliest memory...

A.S. Byatt, the writer had clear recollection of herself in her cot, outside. Dr. Jonathan Miller recollected smells and pain with a cut knee... and Lewis Wolpert couldn't remember a damn thing from his very early life...

My own memories are very vague and patchy from my early childhood.

I have a few memories of doing things before I was 2, and I remember my 2nd birthday. Between then and about 6, there's not much I remember. I did have a nasty concussion during this period though.

it was second grade when they taught us multiplication.

on childhood memories, i definitely have memories going back to around age two, but i don't remember much before that. i read about some people who claim to remember when they were babies, and even remember when they were born. i found that hard to believe, but i guess it's possible.

i wonder if it has anything to do with what kind of childhood you had? for me, i'm the oldest child, and my first three years or so were as an only child. it was a very pleasant time, we lived in an apartment on the campus of a small college. i wonder if i made more of an effort to hold onto those memories? not sure if that would explain it. but i don't remember anything before i was able to walk and talk.

i also wonder if hypnosis could bring back memories from the first year or two.

Well I guess Arizona is just behind, then. I know I didn't do multiplication until third grade, myself. And I remember still having times tables tests in fourth grade. In second grade, I remember struggling with borrowing in subtraction.

Today's lesson went pretty well, actually. I think they're starting to get it. We used linking cubes and made equal groups, and came up with the factors of 20 by using the cubes. And I showed them how they already know the 2s, 5s and 10s, since they can skip count. They they thought was pretty exciting.

Bernd, today's lesson for you is, it's all about the equal groups.

I don't remember a lot of my early childhood. I think because we moved around a lot.

I would never give a sheet of paper with all the facts on it to my students. Well, in a special case, if the kid was ready for it. I'm not trying to get them to memorize. I'm trying to get them to understand the concept. On the tests, it's word problems, so that's what I have to prepare them for.

Well, I moved to Arizona in the 3rd grade. As far as Mathematics, I think we were in about the same place. I was a little bit ahead with reading skills.

However, I did not know how to write in cursive yet. Everyone in my class had been writing in cursive since the 2nd grade. They were not happy about having to relearn it because I didn't know it. As useless of a skill as that is, you'd think they would have been content to have me just not know it. I prefer to not use it anyway.

If I was teaching someone the idea or concepts of Addition, Subtraction, Division, or Multiplication, I would use things like Cubes as well, to represent units.

You were in Phoenix, where they were smart I guess. I was in Ajo. I'm sure that explains it. Ajo is not the land of the advanced. I remember some kids could barely read in sixth grade. I hated it when the teacher would call on one of the slow readers to read out loud. So borrrrring!

I think I learned cursive in second grade. But here they do it in third. I love cursive! I always choose to write in it. Except at work, since my kids don't know it yet. I have to print for them, and it's a bummer.

still feel the same (not really sick, but a little ichy/pain) it's going fast (but not fast enough) and the "infected" areas become red than swollen and back to normal in about a day, but it's not covering the whole body at once so the problem moves over my body.

Then maybe *she* tried to get you into her bed. There are some strange rumours going around about the french ...

Nevertheless, take care on yourself (I've heard the flu is coming again) and get well soon.

I was just joking.

Ya know, in German we do not seperate between "friend" and "boy/girl friend" - so your first msg was just shouting to be be missinterpreted.

Pretty good if you consider that last night I discovered my car has been stolen... So I spent the evening at the police station, even though there's no hope of recovering it. And today I found out that my dad took an insurance policy that did not cover this... Yay!

But it's just a car, I' fine and they didn't b&e in my flat which would have been worse!
