I have been doing learning math facts through automaticity for the last couple of years, but it does bring up some problems. At my school there are still teachers who still do rote memorization of multiplication facts, including Mad Minute. How do you bring the other teachers around to my view point or do I sort of “undo’ what the teacher did last year?
The other issue is parents. I have a number of students who know their times tables among all sorts of things, but have little idea how it works. Do you know of a good article that I could send to parents explaining this approach?
