"Yes, Darling, you have to do the whole page of math problems every day... Yes, we will play multiplication baseball again today... Tomorrow you can do your horse-racing math CD, and we'll skip and clap as we say our multiplication tables."
I follow Dr. Jay Wile's blog, and yesterday he posted a study that suggests math facts burned into your memory help you on your college entrance exams.
Take a moment when you have time and check out his post if you'd like.
