Working on our Multiplication Facts

As part of our Maths this term we will be focusing on our understanding and recall of the multiplication facts. Quick recall of basic multiplication facts can help us to solve more complicated mathematical equations easily.

Mrs S has created a padlet with some links to help us become faster with our recall of multiplication facts.

There are some strategies that can help us when we are working on our multiplication facts. One of these could be called the Twin Rule. When we are multiplying two numbers it does not matter which way we write them the answer will be the same. 3 x 4 and 4 x 3 will both equal 12. The real name for this strategy is the Commutative Law.

What strategies do you use to understand and remember your multiplication facts? Can you recommend any other good websites for our class to use? Please leave a comment sharing your thoughts.
