    How to memorize multiplication tables using a structured drill

    This method of drilling is NOT initially random, but structured. This means that the student sees the structure of the particular multiplication table written in front of him, just without the answers. The teacher will point to the problems in a random fashion. Then the table is also practiced "backwards", again, with the complete table written in the correct order in front of the student, but the first multiplicands missing. Random drilling with flashcards or games is saved for later, after the student has mastered the table using this structured drill.
