This page contains a range of multiplication facts worksheets to help your child memorize their multiplication facts.
What are Multiplication Facts?
Multiplication facts are the basic fundamentals upon which all of multiplication is built.
A knowledge of multiplication facts requires instant recall of the product (answer) of the multiplication of two factors (numbers) from 1 x 1 = 1 up to 10 x 10 = 100 (or, in some countries 12 x 12 = 144).
Memorizing multiplication facts is an important skill because the recall of math facts is essential to future success in higher level math.
As your child progresses through school the math problems they will need to solve will become increasingly complex and require more and more steps to solve.
The task of solving these problems becomes more difficult if your child needs to solve math facts as an extra step in their problem solving. If the math facts are memorized, recall is automatic and effortless and so saves your child time and effort when solving problems.
Using the Multiplication Facts Worksheets
To help your child memorize the times tables you will need to be prepared to spend plenty of time, create fun and interest and repeat exercises over and over.
Here are some suggestions on the things you can do:
- Focus on one factor at a time – Stick to one factor and ‘play’ with it until your child becomes familiar with it and its products.
- Work in sections – The easiest factors to memorize are the two, five and ten. Once memorized move onto the three and four times tables.
- Use a variety of worksheets – Make sure you use a range of different resources to make learning multiplication facts as interesting as possible. Try some of our other multiplication facts worksheets for some different exercises.
- Race against the clock – once your child can correctly recall their multiplication facts, start to work on their speed of recall. You can use a stop watch to time how long it takes to complete each worksheet. Record the times so that your child can try to beat their best time.
- Remember – it doesn’t matter in what order the 2 numbers are that you are multiplying; the result will be the same. For example, 4 x 6 and 6 x 4 both equal 24. A lot of kids would know that 6 x 4 = 24, but if you asked them 4 x 6 they would scratch their heads.
