Product Description
So much of mathematics benefits significantly from a knowledge of tables – addition, multiplication, division, equivalent fractions, area, perimeter, time, money, ratio, proportion, percentage, …. And yet, so little time is devoted to what may be deemed the old school approach of memorizing tables. Whilst time is undoubtedly at a premium in today’s expanding curriculum, spending time to learn tables ensures that all subsequent areas of mathematics can be learned more quickly and efficiently, saving time in the long run.
Typically, too many students answer the question “what is 6 x 4” with strategies such as using repeated addition on their fingers to go from 4 to 8 to 12 to 16 to 20 to 24, or by doubling 3 x 4. Whilst these are admirable and acceptable ways of working out the answer, they are overly time consuming and prove that the student has NOT memorized their table. Since instant recall of tables facts is so beneficial, the goal should be for the student to have cast the entire table to memory and to then be able to state the answer instantly, and without any hesitation.
These sheets are designed with this in mind - to help students MEMORIZE the multiplication tables. As students progress from column 1 through to column 5 for each table, they are continually repeating the table and thereby gaining greater exposure to it, and in most cases, this is in itself part of the memorizing process.
