As an elementary teacher, I have found there are students who can’t memorize their multiplication facts. Now I am wondering if that is because they can’t unitize or never grasped it in earlier grades. Same with place value. I’ve always trusted younger grades to build this base, but maybe not enough time is spent on unitizing? I’m curious to find out.
