While Common Core expects mastery of multiplication and division of whole numbers up to 100 by the end of third grade, older students benefit from repeated practice and exposure to times tables in order to build and maintain fluency and recognition of factor pairs.
These automated PowerPoints each provide a 3-minute flashcard-like activity that covers multiplication from 1x1 through 12x12, with lots of repetition. There are versions with and without answers so that you can remove scaffolding as students build their knowledge and fluency.
This presentation can be used as a quick whole-group, choral-response activity during transition times or as a brain break from other work. Challenge students to beat the answer.
The presentation can also be used at student workstations as a drill-and-practice flashcard activity.
24 files included:
Multiplication by 1-12 with answers
Multiplication by 1-12 no answers

Meets the following Common Core standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.A.4 Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers.
CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.C.7 Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 x 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.OA.B.4 Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1-100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1-100 is prime or composite.
