Learning your times tables facts are extremely important!
The best way to learn them is to:
- First, learn the multiples of the times tables you are learning. For example, if you’re trying to learn your 3 times tables, you should begin by learning all the multiples in order up to 12 x 3, which are 0, 3, 6, 9 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33 and 36.
- Next, you should learn to recite all the times tables facts in chronological order 0 x 3=0, 1 x 3=3, 2 x 3=6, and 3 x 3=9 etc.
- Once you are confident at saying your times tables facts in order, you should get someone to test you on recalling them all in random order e.g. 7 x 3=21,
12 x 3=36, 2 x 3=6 and so on.
