To help my students memorize their multiplication facts, I wrote some of the more difficult problems on large index cards. I passed the cards out along with a safety pin, and the students wore them the entire day. Their names were changed to the answer of the problem on their chest. The students had a blast with this, and more importantly the problems that they were having the most trouble with were “in their face” all day long!
