Practice makes perfect, and this multiplication page gives loads of practice for the 2x, 5x and 10x tables. This is the first stage in introducing the idea of filling in a multiplication grid, multiplying the numbers across and down to fill in the grid.
The first time children come across this they will probably need some assistance, but once a couple have been completed they should be OK.
It is interesting to watch the techniques used to complete these grids. Some children proceed in strict order, others go for the easy ones first. It can be made more of a challenge to set a time limit for the whole page.
