More on multiplying by 2, 3, 5 and 10

I have had several requests for more pages for children to use who are beginning to learn the times tables, so here is another page which takes a quick look at multiplying by 2, 3, 5 and 10.

Children who know the times tables ‘off by heart’ will find this page easy and will fly through it in no time at all. Children who don’t know the times tables will find it much harder and will take much longer to complete it. This makes it an excellent quick short term assessment page.

There is no easy way to learn tables, just a lot of slog going over them again and again until they become known so well that they can be answered as quickly as answering your name. High expectations can push children to success and a times table (e.g. 3 times table) can be recited in full in less than 10 seconds, or even less than 7 seconds if it is really well known.

This page, and other similar pages, can be found in our Year 3 Calculating category, as well as in the four rulrs section of the site.
