What educators are saying

I use these for my math bulletin board. As a introduce a new fact to practice, I add a poster up. Very cute.
I put these up in my third grade classroom. My in person learners used them and liked them. I am new to third grade and I think they are a great resource!


These math posters show a multiplication strategy or tip for learning each multiplication table. As you teach multiplication or your students begin learning the multiplication facts, teach the strategy or tip on the poster. Then have the students take the quick strategy assessment for that multiplication table included in this resource.

Learning multiplication facts can be overwhelming and daunting for some students. Memorization isn't always easy or reliable. But knowing the facts will be necessary for doing higher-level math. Students need multiplication strategies and tips that will help them know and recall the facts when needed.


  • Teach the strategy or tip that is on the chart.
  • Have students practice the strategy or tip.
  • Display these colorful multiplication posters in your classroom. Easy to read contrasting colors make for an attractive display
  • Have students refer to the poster when stuck on a particular multiplication fact.
  • Assess to see if the student is using the strategy (quick strategy assessment included)
  • With a copy machine, shrink the black and white versions to make smaller versions for centers, student folders, or centers.
  • Just print and laminate.


  • Eleven colorful posters showing the strategies or tips for multiplication tables 0-10
  • Eleven black and white versions of the same posters
  • Color and Black/White versions of Calculator Hands Poster
  • Color and Black/White versions of the 9s Hand/Finger Trick
  • Half-Page mini-assessments for each multiplication table to test the use of the strategy


  • Included is Calculator Hands! A chart that demonstrates to your students how to turn their hands into calculators to figure out the multiplication tables from 6 to 10.
  • Guaranteed to be a lifesaver for those students who have difficulties memorizing lots of information, such as the multiplication tables, especially the tricky 6s, 7s, and 8s.
  • There are also instructions on printing poster size (15” x 20” poster uses 6 sheets of paper) using Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat, or any other PDF reader/printer.
  • There are color and black and white versions of each poster.


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Megan R. says, "My students find these posters very engaging due to the images and little "story" that goes along with each multiplication rule. Will have these posted for the rest of the year in my room! Great resource."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Dawn H. says, "I put these up in my third grade classroom. My in person learners used them and liked them. I am new to third grade and I think they are a great resource!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sherrie S. says, "these were just what was needed in my classroom. Great visual resources. Thank you."

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.
