5 x 7 =

my eight-year-old son is studying his multiplication tables in school. This morning he said he had to study up to the fives table so I quickly asked him what seven times five equeals…he thought for a few moments longer than rote memorization would have allowed…he then correctly replied "thirty-five". I asked him if took him so long because he was counting in his head "five, ten, fifteen…"…his reply was "no…I was counting seven, fourteen, twenty-one…" 🙂
