As some of you have read, I've found some great freelance writing work over the summer writing math content. Without going into too much detail, I'm one of two writers breaking down middle and high school math content into basics. As I go through topic after topic, one thing is glaringly obvious-- a kid who doesn't know his times tables COLD is in some serious trouble all the way down the road!!!!! I can not BELIEVE the number of times I've typed "times tables" over the past few days!!!!!
