The two experiments presented in this paper begin a coherent sequence of investigations into how best to teach multiplication facts. The question of Experiment 1 asked if correct responding generalizes from taught multiplication facts to their untaught reciprocals. The results of that experiment showed that some generalization did occur from taught multiplication facts to their untaught reciprocals. That generalization, however, was neither perfect, nor substantial. It was, however, sufficient to constitute an experimental confound. Thus, Experiment 2 excluded reciprocals from an evaluation of a computerized program to teach multiplication facts. The results of Experiment 2 showed that systematic cumulative reviews produced relatively error-free, high rate responding across a broad sample of multiplication facts.
