Easiest Multiplication Tables to Memorize
The easiest facts to memorize are 2s, 5s, and 10s. Then, your child can find the answers to these facts and continue skip counting from there.
A Trick for the 9s
- Hold your hands in front of you with your fingers spread out.
- 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
