Some kids think that if Math is not inportant they should think again. Math is very inportnat no matter how much it takes to learn. It is fun to do!!!!!!!

I love that you created this sheet for math practice and I will use it with my children.
However, I was attempting to create a sheet that showed the grid of multiplications up to 25 using OpenOffice.org Calc. You know the kind, 25 down and 25 across, but I am finding I can't use the copy and paste method to do it. Instead if I want formulas, I have to enter in a formula for each cell such as =A5*G1 (for 4X6) and then next cell is =A6*G1 (for 5X6) and so on until I hit A26 and then start all over again with =A1*H1 and then =A2*H1. At that speed it would be faster to just enter the numbers instead of formulas. Do you know of better/faster ways to fill in the grid or is what I found basically the only thing that can be done?

Hi Professor,

The formula specifies 1-12 rather than 1-25. Change the formula, then drag or copy and paste all the data.

I'm going to repost this today as a new post for January 26th, and I'll post a new version there, with the same one done a little differently. It's any random number between 1 and 25, times another random number between 1 and 25.

i love this site do you love well i do love this site it is cool
