Multiplication Tables

Thought I would wake up this discussion list.

How often in Sudbury Valley model schools do 9 year olds ask staff
members to help them learn the multiplication tables? I remember that
in Pomona, California in about 1943 they did not teach multiplication
tables in 3rd grade and when we moved to Salt Lake Dad spent a couple
weeks in the evenings teaching me up to the 10x10's so I could catch up
with the other 4th graders.

I am interested if there has been similar experiences at Sudbury or one
of the other schools represented on this list. Dale
