These 3 charts present the idea that memorizing multiplication facts is actually much easier than students think! They all show that there are really only 21 new (or hard) multiplication facts to learn. As a BONUS, I am also including 2 posters with rhymes for 2 of the hardest facts.
These 21 facts are the ones left over after removing the facts for 2, 5, and 10 (because of the skip counting they already know), explaining the rules for 0 and 1, then applying the commutative property of multiplication. The last chart is one you can use for demonstrating this idea to your students by coloring in all the facts they already know or only need to learn one time.
Concentrating on these 21 multiplication facts makes memorization seem manageable for even the most reluctant math student!
I’d appreciate your rating and your feedback.
