Math facts are the keys that open the doors to being able to solve harder computation and word problems.
Timed tests do not help children learn math facts, strategies do! After showing what multiplication means, students should memorize the multiplication facts.
If Common Core matters in your area, we offer books with and without mention of Common Core. See below for a list of Common Core State Standards that Five Times Five Is Not Ten supports.

I absolutely love both your workbooks! I’ve taught 2nd and 3rd grade and have used both. I love how you taught addition and subtraction at the same time so students can see the connection. I also love the way you introduce the multiplication with “tricks.”
I just bought the book Five Times Five Is Not Ten, and love the strategies to teach multiplication. The hands on activities, along with strategies will help my students to really “see” and know their facts, not just skip counting to get to the next multiplication facts. I like the book so much I’m ordering the Two Plus Two Is Not Five to see how to help 1st and 2nd grade with their addition and subtraction. It’s obvious a lot of research has gone into these books.
I’ve purchased all of your books and had much success with using them with my child. I’ve recommended them to other parents. Thank you so much for a great product.

Five Times Five Is Not Ten supports the following Common Core State Standards:
3.OA.7 By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
2.OA.2 Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
3.OA.1 Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
3.OA.5 Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. Examples: If 6 x 4 = 24 is known, then 4 x 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.)
3.OA.9 Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.
