I don’t see where it says “that mastering multiplication tables is LESS important in the Common Core.” in the article you referenced.

I completely agree with you. It is NOT less important in the common core, it is still a very important concept. The way we go about it has changed and that was the point I believe. Of COURSE we all want kids to know their multiplication facts fluently.
