The Times Tables are one of the foundation stones of your education. Like being able to count, write and spell, it is important to be able to multiply. You will need it in every subject and later at work and play. I will be honest with you. There is no easy way to remember your tables. You will just have to accept the fact that you will have to read them over and over again till you remember them so deeply that the answers just pop out without trying. Just like you remember your name. After you have done the hard work and learnt your times tables you can have some fun testing yourself, but first .. Print this page and read each table aloud 10 times a day. If you can understand that sums like 7 x 6 are the same as 6 x 7 then you only have to learn about half as much. Learn off by heart the sums in white at the bottom and see where they are repeated in grey above.

Naught times table
not shown. It is too easy. 0 times any number is still 0. Imagine three
bits of nothing  you still have nothing. The 10 times table is also not
shown because it is too easy. 10 x 10 = 100 Any number times 1 remains the same number. See the blue row. Also, any number divided by 1 remains the same number. For example, 8 divided by 1 equals 8. For 1 2's are 2 say aloud 'one twos are
two'. For 5 2's are 10 say aloud 'five twos are ten' and so on. The word 'times' is usually replaced with a little cross 'x' . It is quicker to write 1 x 6 than 1 times 6 It is easier to practice with a friend. Read the tables together with rhythm, like in a song. Then one can say the first part 'one fives are' and the other friend can answer 'five'
