I can't find the thread in which I talked (ranted?) about multiplication tables, so I'll start a new one. This is very, very bad. Bad teacher, no apple! To have memorization trump conceptual understanding is a fundamental failure to understand what mathematics is all about. Besides ... commutitative property of multiplication!!! Even Wolfram Alpha know this.

In 1982, the Forest Agency of the Japanese government premiered its shinrin-yoku plan. In Japanese shinrin means forest, and yoku, although it has several meanings, refers here to a “bathing, showering or basking in.” More broadly, it is defined as “taking in, in all of our senses, the forest atmosphere.” The program was established to encourage the populace to get out into nature, to literally bathe the mind and body in greenspace, and take advantage of public owned forest networks as a means of promoting health. Some 64 percent of Japan is occupied by forest, so there is ample opportunity to escape the megacities that dot its landscape.
