Do you have any multiplication tricks to remember?
When multiplying by the number 9 you can easily refresh your memory by holding your 10 fingers out in front of you. If you want to know what 9x8 is you can put down your 8th finger (your right middle finger) and then looking from left to right you have 7 fingers up on the left and 2 fingers up on the right. 9x8=72. This works for every finger up to 10. If you put your 10th finger (your right pinky). I also have a hand trick for remembering multiplications tables of 6-10.
What is the psychology behind childhood development?
A major theory is the behavioral theory. This focuses on how environment interactions influences behavior. This studies only observable actions made by the reactions to rewards, punishment, stimuli and reinforcement. So how the individual reacts to their immediate environment. For example, if someone tells a joke for the first time and receives a positive response by a group of people or a person, they will most likely tell that joke again because of the positive reinforcement that occurred. The reverse would work as well, if they received a negative response by the group or a person, they will not tell that joke again. These are both learned behaviors due to their immediate environment.
