I only use tic-tac-toe for multiplication/divison. I like your idea with
the sticky notes; so many wonderful ideas to share.

Shirley,
Are you refering to the "tic-tac-toe" math suggested by Dr. Richard
Cooper? It is an excellent way to work with both addition facts and math
facts. I have used it for both. Again another learning tool to keep handy
for learning the multiplication facts.
One of the other participants mentioned the fact of using the
multiplication tables. I have a large table that have all the answers and I
have sticky notes that are cut to the size of each square. I begin by having

a student/students cover what they already know. When they are finished the
task of what they have to learn is not so overwhelming to them.
