You can find a multiplication chart to print here. As seen in the photo above, it shows all possible factor and product combinations from one to twelve.
If you know how to use the chart feel free to check out some of the free worksheets below. If you're not familiar with the multiplication chart, I'm going to cover the basics of reading and using it, so keep on reading.
Learning multiplication tables by memory is extremely important to future math skills. That is why we spend so much time focusing on
skip counting in our house.
A multiplication chart is a wonderful resource, but it shouldn't be relied on too much. It's useful for teaching multiplication to students just beginning to learn the times tables, but it should not be used as the main method for solving problems.
The chart is a gridded table set up to show quick answers to specific number combinations. Most often, these tables use the numbers 1 through 12.
To use the chart, select a number in the top horizontal row and a number in the left vertical row.
As you run your eyes down the columns,
the place where they intersect is the product of those two factors.
In the example shown, choosing the factors of 3 and 4 and running down the chart until the two intersect shows a product of 12.
3 x 4 = 12
Although many students groan at the thought of memorizing all those
tedious factors and products, they will enjoy the fun worksheets and
catchy song videos. Both visual and audio stimulation seems to make
learning the tables much easier!
When homeschooling your child, remember to incorporate several different activities to break up the day. Physical interaction, as well as incorporation of practical learning into daily tasks can keep the child stimulated and happy.
I've made many worksheets available to you to help you do just that. Check out the pages below for more help with multiplication charts.
