Math may be a tough subject for kids, so finding fun ways to learn can be helpful.

This guy is trying to do just that, but, oh boy, does he fail like a preschooler taking a calculus exam.

This fella thinks he has a shortcut for learning multiplication and spends two minutes explaining this convoluted method for figuring out what nine times four is. Seriously, it's easier to just remember the answer is 36 than remember all the tools he tries to come up with.

Why you'd need to stand on your dad while he's sleeping seems a strange way to learn you multiplication tables, but, hey, if it works for just one person, well, he actually succeeded one more time than we'd think.

We can only imagine what kind of befuddling mnemonic device he'd come up with for learning the periodic table of elements.
