Times tables: More 3x tables

3_times_table_2This is a slightly harder worksheet than the last one published on the three times table. This page does not have a number line to help and the questions are asked in different order eg 6 x 3 or 3 x 6. This could be used as a timed challenge for those who are gaining confidence in learning the table.

Interestingly, when I whizzed through this page mentally I suddenly realised that I did not necessarily work out the answer in the order shown on the page. For example I thought of 2 x 3 as 2 x 3 = 6, but when it cam to 3 x 5 I thought of it as 5 x 3 = 15. I saw the two numbers which needed multiplying and automatically chose the easier way to do them. However, this would not be the case for children who do not know all their tables.
