While I know that there are mixed feeling about drilling math facts, I have found through my own experience that when the kids have the basics down, the more difficult stuff is easier to tackle. Memorizing Math Facts can be done in a myriad of ways such as math games (board and electronic), flash cards, and drill sheets.
Memorizing Math Facts

Roman numerals use letters instead of numbers. There are seven letters you need to know:
- I = 1
- V = 5
- X = 10
- L = 50
- C = 100
- D = 500
- M = 1000
