Use a multiplication test to gauge how well your child is progressing through the multiplication lessons. The tests here are basic multiplication problems that focus on one particular factor and its multiples.
These simple tests are great for determining if there is a particular factor that your child struggles with. They can also be turned into a multiplication timed test using a simple stopwatch. Each test below should be completed within one minute.
How To Use The Tests
Our son is currently memorizing his multiplication facts from one through twelve and taking tests just like these in class. I like the way they learn their facts in his class and would recommend doing something similar at home with your child.
At school, he needs to pass his ones test and then he moves on to his twos. Once he passes the twos, he needs to complete a mixed test of ones and twos. He then moves on to threes, passes them, and takes a fours test. After completing the fours, he takes a 3 and 4's mixed test.
Learning continues on number by number with a mixed test after every two new factors. I've created some Mixed Factors Multiplication Worksheets here, so once your child has mastered a few of the factors below, be sure to check those out to make sure that he or she retains the information for each set of multiples.
I've created a test for each factor from 1 to 12 below. If you would like for your child to get more practice, I would highly recommend using the Math Worksheet Site. They have a paid subscription area, but you can also create and print free worksheets. If you find that your child is struggling with one particular factor or set of factors, you can tailor worksheets to focus on those particular numbers.
To print out your test, click on any image below. It will open a PDF in another tab. Once you've downloaded the file you can print it out and start working on those math facts.
If your child is struggling with completing the tests within the one minute time frame, you can review multiplication facts using the pages below.
You might also want to check out the flashcards I've made available. They're an excellent way to practice and memorize multiplication problems.
