    one way to memorize math multiplication tables is to walk for exercise 1 mile out 1 mile back. Recite the table in step with your pace.

    1 x 1 =1 is three steps. You can pace it any way you want but do the whole table.

    another way is to recite them when trying to go to sleep at night .

    It will take two weeks to memorize multi table and a week for square table.

    Learn them for single digit operands, then apply to larger problems. 

    It also helps to know how to multiply  by 2 or 10 repeatedly. 

    Learn or recognize the squares (up to 20) and cubes of numbers (up to 10)

    Learn the first few prime numbers and how to test for divisibility by then. 

    Learn the rules for Boolean algebra.

    Learn tables for base 8. 

    Learn tables for base 16.

    You don't really need to memorize anything in math. Just understand the ideas and you can figure the tables out. 

    For example, 7 times 9 is 7 less than 7 times 10. 7 times 10 is 70 and 70-7=63.
