While almost everyone memorizes the multiplication tables, very few children take the time to memorize their addition and subtraction facts. Instead, they tend to “count on their fingers” to arrive at the right answers. But it’s just as important to quickly know “9 plus 7” as to know “9 times 7. ”
With this program, they will hear these facts to great pieces of music like a Strauss waltz or a popular theme from Verdi’s famous opera, “Aida.” You’ve heard this music before at the movies, but now you’ll recognize it as great classical music. Not only will you hear and appreciate their music, you’ll also learn about the composers themselves! Then, you’ll reinforce that learning with clever crossword puzzles about those composers.

If you're going to set math facts to music to learn them, why not set them to classical music? And why not throw in a little study of the composers as a bonus? If you did, you'd have this product. Each of the tables is set to a classical melody taken from a work by the likes of Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Chopin, Handel, and other famous composers. For example, the 5x table is presented with a theme from Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony. The 9+ facts are set to a song from Verdi's Aida. Each "song" is performed four times on the CD; the first three are sung with answers, the last time your child will solo. Songs are not lyrical; they just repeat all of the math facts for that number. These are much like the Audio Memory method, only the music is less sing-songy because the melodies are more complex. Each CD is accompanied by a short booklet with a 2-page spread for each number. The left facing page has all of the math facts for that number shown in both horizontal and vertical format. The right facing page has a brief composer biographical sketch followed by a short crossword puzzle about the composer. The addition package covers facts from 1's to 10's. The multiplication set covers tables to 12's. The last page in each book is a reproducible drill sheet with all of the mixed facts, including space for completion time and score. An appealing math memory aid and drill product that's sure to become a classic in its own right.
