This worksheet provides targeted practice with the strategy of using a known fact to figure out a "nearby" fact using addition or subtraction. For example, using 8X5=40 to figure out 8X6=48. The worksheet provides a bank of five multiplication facts, and the questions are all "nearby" facts. The problems are outside of the standard 12X12 multiplication table, so students will be more likely to use the strategy. The purpose of the worksheet is to provide practice with a specific multiplication strategy.
Worksheet is one page (20 problems). Answers are on the second page including the required addition or subtraction problem. Students may need to do their work on a separate sheet of paper.
