    13 Tables in 13 Days (an adaptation from the book "Multiplication Facts in 7 Days"):

    -Over the next 13 days we will be learning all the multiplication facts from 0x0 to 12x12.

    -Each day the students will make new fact cards that they are to study for an assessment the next day.

    -Please have your child master these new facts each day, so that s/he knows them by the next school day.

    The program will go in this order:

    Day 1: Squares-- 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, 8x8, 9x9, 10x10, 11x11, 12x12 (11 new facts)

    Day 2: 2's-- 2x3, 2x4, 2x5, 2x6, 2x7, 2x8, 2x9, 2x10, 2x11, 2x12 (10 new facts)

    Day 3: 5's-- 5x3, 5x4, 5x6, 5x7, 5x8, 5x9, 5x10, 5x11, 5x12 (9 new facts)

    Day 4: 3's-- 3x4, 3x6, 3x7, 3x8, 3x9, 3x10, 3x11, 3x12 (8 new facts)

    Day 5: 4's-- 4x6, 4x7, 4x8, 4x9, 4x10, 4x11, 4x12 (7 new facts)

    Day 6: 6's-- 6x7, 6x8, 6x9, 6x10, 6x11, 6x12 (6 new facts)

    Day 7: 7's-- 7x8, 7x9, 7x10, 7x11, 7x12 (5 new facts)

    Day 8: 8's-- 8x9, 8x10, 8x11, 8x12 (4 new facts)

    Day 9: 9's-- 9x10, 9x11, 9x12 (3 new facts)

    Day 10: 10's-- 10x11, 10x12 (2 new facts)

    Day 11: 11's-- 11x12 (1 new fact)

    Day 12: Test on 11's; review 12's (no new facts)

    Day 13: Test on 12's
