Multiplication Multiplication

I think I am learning multiplication sort of well, I also think I have them all in my head. But I’m still not perfect yet but I think I’m getting better but I really have no idea? But I’m very good at x1= and x2= and x3 and I have a problem with x7 x8 x9 and that’s all. But I’m not the best at these but I’m pretty good x4 x5 x6 and that’s all I can say on how good I am about what I’m good at and what I’m not. I am also good at the parts that say, “Can you double 2x6”? When I’m at home I help my brother sometimes find his pieces and I multiply to make sure that he has them all too(I’ve only done it once). I learned how to do a little multiplication in 1st or 2nd, I’m not sure which one but I’m thinking it was 2nd grade. Ok now I’m going to tell you how I learned to do multiplication.

We were driving from somewhere and right before we went up our drive way I asked, “Dad? What is multiplication?”
My dad said it was two numbers that you timed and he said I times problem 2x5=10 because you can do it two ways, you can do two fives or five twos and you still get the same answer. Then I moved to 3rd grade which I’m in now and now multiplication is very much easier. That’s all I remember.

How Did you learn multiplication?
