Maths worksheet: learning tables

48510-table-1Tables grids for 4x, 8x, 5x and 10x tables

On the next page is a tables grid for learning the 4x, 8x, 5x and 10x tables.
The grid is filled in by taking the numbers across the top with the numbers down the side as shown below.

x      4       8
5 20    40
6 24    48

The tables have been chosen because the 8x table is double the 4x table and the 5x table is half of the 10x table. This should lead to a quicker speed of working out even if the tables have not been learnt.

There are many different approaches to this type of problem. Some children fill in the answers in strict order, others go through and complete the ones they know off by heart, and then try to work the rest out.
It is a good idea to set a time limit to these to encourage learning them off by heart.
