Multiplication is an important skill not only in fourth grade, but also in future math classes in middle school, high school, and college.  You must know your multiplication facts (no counting on your fingers allowed!) and also know how to complete multiplication problems such as two digit by two digit multiplication. 
Imagine you are giving advice to another student about multiplication.  What tips would you share about how to remember multiplication facts?  How would you explain how to multiply two digit by two digit numbers to them?
