# Why are times tables important?

We would be amazed at how much of our maths at school and in real life is based on TABLES.It is important that your child knows all of their times tables (as much possible).

# How to learn 2 Times Table

2X is just doubling the number. The same as adding the number to itself.

 1 x 2 = 2 5 x 2 = 10 9 x 2 = 18 2 x 2 = 4 6 x 2 = 12 10 x 2 = 20 3 x 2 = 6 7 x 2 = 14 11 x 2 = 22 4 x 2 = 8 8 x 2 = 16 12 x 2 = 24

# How to learn 3 Times Table

There is a clever trick to find out if a number is in the 3x tables. If the digits in the number add up to either 3, 6 or 9, then that number is in the 3x tables.

e.g. 27 2 + 7 = 9

 1 x 3 = 3 5 x 3 = 15 9 x 3 = 27 2 x 3 = 6 6 x 3 = 18 10 x 3 = 30 3 x 3 = 9 7 x 3 = 21 11 x 3 = 33 4 x 3 = 12 8 x 3 = 24 12 x 3 = 36

# How to learn 4 Times Table

4x simply double the number and double it again. Notice how, in the 4x tables, all of the units are even digits.

 1 x 4 = 4 5 x 4 = 20 9 x 4 = 36 2 x 4 = 8 6 x 4 = 24 10 x 4 = 40 3 x 4 = 12 7 x 4 = 28 11 x 4 = 44 4 x 4 = 16 8 x 4 = 32 12 x 4 = 48

# How to learn 5 Times Table

5x has a pattern: 5, 10, 15, 20, etc. So, numbers in the 5 x tables
always end in either 0 or 5
Or, you could x10 and half

 1 x 5 = 5 5 x 5 = 10 9 x 5 = 45 2 x 5 = 10 6 x 5 = 30 10 x 5 = 50 3 x 5 = 15 7 x 5 = 35 11 x 5 = 55 4 x 5 = 20 8 x 5 = 40 12 x 5 = 60

# How to learn 6 Times Table

6x remember to use the facts that you have already learned. 6 x 4 = 24 so 4 x 6 = 24.
6 x 6 = 36. Notice how that rhymes!
6 x 8 = 48. That rhymes too!

 1 x 6 = 6 5 x 6 = 30 9 x 6 = 54 2 x 6 = 12 6 x 6 = 36 10 x 6 = 60 3 x 6 = 18 7 x 6 = 42 11 x 6 = 66 4 x 6 = 24 8 x 6 = 48 12 x 6 = 72

# How to learn 7 Times Table

7x remember to use the facts that you have already learnt.
7 x 5 = 35 so 5 x 7 =35

 1 x 7 = 7 5 x 7 = 35 9 x 7 = 63 2 x 7 = 14 6 x 7 = 42 10 x 7 = 70 3 x 7 = 21 7 x 7 = 49 11 x 7 = 77 4 x 7 = 28 8 x 7 = 56 12 x 7 = 84

# How to learn 8 Times Table

8x all of the numbers in the 8 times tables are even.
Can you spot the pattern? The ones digits go down in 2s (8, 6, 4, 2, 0)

 1 x 8 = 8 5 x 8 = 40 9 x 8 = 72 2 x 8 = 16 6 x 8 = 48 10 x 8 = 80 3 x 8 = 24 7 x 8 = 56 11 x 8 = 88 4 x 8 = 32 8 x 8 = 64 12 x 8 = 96

# How to learn 9 Times Table

9x has a pattern: 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90
Notice how the ones go down: 9,8,7,6, ...? And the tens go up: 1,2,3,...? Your hands can help! Example: to multiply 9 by 8: hold your 8th finger down, and you can count "7" and "2" ... the answer is 72.

 1 x 9 = 9 5 x 9 = 45 9 x 9 = 81 2 x 9 = 18 6 x 9 = 54 10 x 9 = 90 3 x 9 = 27 7 x 9 = 63 11 x 9 = 99 4 x 9 = 36 8 x 9 = 72 12 x 9 = 108

# How to learn 10 Times Table

10x is maybe the easiest of them all ... just move your digit one space to the left and add a zero as a place holder.

 1 x 10 = 10 5 x 10 = 50 9 x 10 = 90 2 x 10 = 20 6 x 10 = 60 10 x 10 = 100 3 x 10 = 30 7 x 10 = 70 11 x 10 = 110 4 x 10 = 40 8 x 10 = 80 12 x 10 = 120

# How to learn 11 Times Table

11x is easy-peasy up to 9 x 11: just write the number that you are multiplying twice. E.g. 3 x 11 = 33

 1 x 11 = 11 5 x 11 = 55 9 x 11 = 99 2 x 11 = 22 6 x 11 = 66 10 x 11 = 110 3 x 11 = 33 7 x 11 = 77 11 x 11 = 121 4 x 11 = 44 8 x 11 = 88 12 x 11 = 132

# How to learn 12 Times Table

12x Note that 12 is 10 + 2, so 12 x something is 10 x something + 2 x something.
Example: 4 x 12 =
10 x 4 = 40 + 2 x 4 = 8
40 + 8 = 48

 1 x 12 = 12 5 x 12 = 60 9 x 12 = 108 2 x 12 = 24 6 x 12 = 72 10 x 12 = 120 3 x 12 = 36 7 x 12 = 84 11 x 12 = 132 4 x 12 = 48 8 x 12 = 96 12 x 12 = 144

# How to learn 15 Times Table

15x Numbers in the 15 times tables will always end in a 5 or a 0.
Note that 15 is 10 + 5, so 15 x something is 10 x something + 5 x something.
Example: 6 x 15 =
10 x 6 = 60 + 5 x 6 = 30
60 + 30 = 90

 1 x 15 = 15 5 x 15 = 75 9 x 15 = 135 2 x 15 = 30 6 x 15 = 90 10 x 15 = 150 3 x 15 = 45 7 x 15 = 105 11 x 15 = 165 4 x 15 = 60 8 x 15 = 120 12 x 15 = 180

## Important Tips to help you learn your times tables at home:

• When your child has begun to learn a table, practise the table for 5 minutes each day with them.
• Ask your child to chant each times table out loud: Example: "two" times "two" is "four".
• Make a Rhyme
• It is very important to say the whole table, not just the answers, again and again!
• Break down each table into manageable chunks. For example, ask them 1 x 3, 2 x 3 and 5 x 3 until they know the answers. Then add the next one
• Work on pairs of tables, Example if your kid is learning the 2 times table they can use their doubling facts to calculate the 4 times tables.
• Test your child by asking questions at them, out of order reminding them that they can use facts that they are confident with to work out trickier ones.Example if they know 2 x 6=12 just double to find 4x6.
• Keep checking that they still know the facts they have learnt and revisit previously learnt facts
• Encourage your child to write out the table they are learning again and again.
