    I always thought the problem with memorization of multiplication facts shows up when a child’s memory fails them.

    Students often resort to guessing when they lack a conceptual understanding of what multiplication means.

    That was a brilliant point made in this video connecting memorization to information difficult to link to other relevant memories.

    Counting to multiplying, seems to me to be a continuum. The gradual changes that occur along the way offer so many connecting points that students that simply memorize are being cheated.
