The multiplication chart introduces the products and factors of multiples up to twelve. Although charts are handy reference tools, they can also become a hindrance to learning basic multiplication facts.

Encourage your child to memorize the basic multiplication facts from zero up to twelve. I've created plenty of worksheets that cover how to teach multiplication and different strategies for learning how to multiply.
