### Tips for Learning Multiplication Facts

Start with the 2s, then 5s, then 10s. Then work on fact families.

A Trick for the 9s

• If the problem is 9 x 4, bend in your 4th finger (from the left)
• In front of the bent finger you have 3 fingers. After the bent finger you have 6 fingers
• So the answer is 36.

A Trick for the 4s

• Double a number and double it again.
• If the problem is 6 x 4, double 6 (12) and then double 12 (24).
• Or double 6 (12), double 6 again (12) and add up both doubles (12 + 12 = 24)
• A Trick for the 10s
• Each number multiplied by 10 adds a zero to it.
• 4 x 10 = 40, 7 x 10=70

A Trick for the 11s

• Any number times 11 is that digit doubled.
• 11 x 6 = 66, 11 x 4 = 44

Whether your child relies on the times table charts, skip counts in their head, or uses their fingers it is important for your child to find a strategy that works for them. It may not be the strategy that you recommend or what works for you, but it is only beneficial if it works for them.

Blank charts are a great way to practice skip counting or to focus on certain fact families.
