Multiplication Facts Worksheets
A multiplication fact is just that, truth of a multiplication operation. Better stated, it is a product between two specified numbers. An example would be that 5 x 2 is 10. The commutative property of multiplication also tells us that the way in which you order these multipliers does not matter. Referring back to the previous example it does not matter is 5 or 2 are the multiplicand or multiplier, the final product will be 10. Learning these facts can be tackled a number of different ways. Most of my students have success by constantly using flashcards until they cannot miss. These worksheets and lessons center around multiplication facts where the bottom number is a fixed number over the entire printable page.

How to Learn Your Multiplication Facts
Multiplication plays a vital role in solving many mathematical problems that exist in our everyday. Children are taught these multiplication facts from a young age. In fact, these multiplication facts are crucial in childhood mathematics and form most of the foundation of where they pivot to in middle. Many advanced mathematical concepts are solved and based on these facts. Therefore, it is necessary for every child to master these facts to perform complicated mathematical problems easily and efficiently. Here are a few tricks and tips that will make multiplication facts learning easier.
First things first, don't try to learn every timetable slot one time at a time. Start with the simplest tables like 2s, 5s, and 10s. Starting with simple tables will help you in approaching difficult tables in a better way. When you get to difficult tables, you will know a few facts. It also somewhat creates a rhythm for you to learn things like 3s and 4s. Give yourself some time to learn and memorize every table. Don't try to learn all the tables all at once. In reality, learning every table at a time is the worst way of memorizing multiplication facts. Select one times table and focus on memorizing that table. Once you have learned that table by heart, only then move on to the next one.
A great way to go about this is to focus on tables that are factors and build up from there. For example, 2s are a great place to start because they will help you learn your 4s, 6s, 8s, 10s, and even 12s. 3s are the second place to look because they will help you learn your 6s, 9s, and 12s because they are all factors of 3 and have a great deal of overlap.
Ask someone to quiz you on the times table you learned recently. Quizzing will enhance your memorization of the tables and keep these learned facts fresh in your mind. I cannot tell you how helpful it is to have access to nicely printed flashcards that are durable. I encourage all my students and parents to get them.
