TEACHERS (of all grades)-INSTEAD OF BEMOANING A LACK OF MULTIPLICATION SKILLS, LET'S WORK WITH THE TIMES-TABLE IN BITE-SIZE CHUNKS (that is, manageable chunks time-wise--daily, weekly, whenever you have an extra 5 or 10 minutes) OFTEN THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR (with each day being somewhat different from every other day) IN ORDER TO REINFORCE THE CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF THIS KNOWLEDGE.
For grade 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 TEACHERS, this is the ideal tool to reinforce multiplication (and division) skills from 1x1 to 12x12. WHY?
Each of the 160 pages (for each skill--multiplication or division) has a UNIQUE COMBINATION of 50 problems (out of the pool of 144) so that each page differs (somewhat) from the other 159 pages (for math purists, there are over 30 million possibilities here as denoted by 30C10--so 160 is just a small fraction of that). This means that if you work on a new page each time, you will NEVER have a page that is 100% identical to any other.
Turn to ANY PAGE--do a DAILY WARM-UP on ANY row (10 problems) or combination of rows (20, 30, 40 or 50 problems) or the LEFT SIDE of the page (25 problems) or the RIGHT SIDE (25 different problems) or have a CONTEST on the WHOLE PAGE or a QUIZ on a page or portion of a page. PROJECT any page onto your whiteboard or PRINT it out--your choice.
160 pages for multiplication skills and another 160 pages for division skills--each page being a different combination of 50 problems taken from the pool of 144 (12 x 12).
Do your students the ULTIMATE FAVOR--inculcate the desire to know these facts since every math teacher from Middle School onward decries the lack of skills in this area--OF ADDRESSING THIS SKILL in a UNIQUE FASHION.
The dreaded DRILLS can now be done in a comprehensive, different-every-day, approach that can encourage COMPETITION (individual OR group), MASTERY and ENJOYMENT. Best of all, this is far cheaper and versatile than flashcards as you have as many approaches as your imagination will allow. AND, it sure beats the same table in the same format over and over again which can be filled in with no knowledge of multiplication whatsoever!
[The problems in All WORKSHEETS and PREVIEWS are printed in difficulty (1 [easy], 2 [not so easy], 3 [proficiency] up to 4 [mastery]) order within a skill. The actual difficulty level appears slightly to the left of the DK box of each problem in a very small font. Also, instructional references appear on worksheets but are optional on quizzes.]
As these skills are in the OA domain at a 3rd grade level, you might want to look at the OA [Operations & Algebraic Thinking] Domain
