Okay, so we were discussing the fact that a kid we know has to memorize addition tables (much like multiplication tables)...

1+1=2
1+2=3
...
etc, etc, etc

And is given speed drills on them so he has to have them memorized & be able to pull them from his head QUICKLY. Which of course, I honestly think is kinda ridiculous. If you can add on your fingers, that's good enough. Who cares if they are memorized. We didn't memorize them back when I went to school & I have always made straight A's in math... ALWAYS & will honestly sit here & tell you I still use my fingers to this day sometimes. DH is the opposite & insists they SHOULD be memorized. What are your thoughts?
