How did this system get started?

Posted by: 

Alan Walker has been an educator for over thirty years.  This system is based on a method Alan developed in his classroom fifteen years ago.  Using pictures and stories, he was able to teach ALL of his students the times tables in a few weeks spending just 10 to 15 minutes a day.  Other teachers heard about his 'new' way of teaching the times tables and begged him to share the system.  Over the next five years, the book was written, revised, and modified as teachers tested his method and gave constructive feedback. 
His first book, Memorize in Minutes: The Times Tables quickly sold over 30,000 copies and was used by thousands of schools, teachers, and parents.  Multiplication in a Flash was developed based on the comments and feedback of hundreds of parents, students, and teachers.  Teachers wanted a book that would teach the times tables even faster.  Parents wanted a system that would help their children master the times tables quickly and efficiently.

The website,, was developed to make the system available to ALL students.
