    Default A question for you

    Don't ask me why, but this popped into my head this morning. Can kids today actually multiply and divide without the aid of a calculator/phone/PC? I don't have any kids so I don't know where things are at these days. Do they still teach kids these basic skills?

    I'm surprised, but they do in our elementary schools
    I know because the grandkids bring homework

    basic skills need to be reinforced
