Do you know all your math facts in your head or do you use your fingers sometimes?

It really depends on what I'm doing while trying to do the facts. For the most part I can do them in my head, but on occasion I use my fingers.

Until Ani did MUS Alpha I ALWAYS counted certain 7+ and 8+ facts on my fingers. Now I can do them in my head.

This is crazy but, while I know all of my mult. fact by site, I still sometimes count the adding ones. How crazy is that???

I know pretty much all my math facts by site, but sometimes I count in my head. I'm getting better now that we're using MUS.

I am really bad with maths and chose MUS becuse I wanted to learn maths too. So while I know some facts I still count plenty on my fingers.

I only count on my fingers to double-check if I'm doing something really important like the checkbook. I know my facts, but I second-guess myself.

I've certainly gotten better at the facts since we started doing MUS! I was especially bad with +6 and up and almost always counted on my fingers...now I don't, for the most part. I still catch myself counting on my fingers sometimes, but not nearly as much. (Subtraction facts are yet to come! That's what we're working on now.)
