Do you know your Times Tables?

In year 5 we have been trying to learn our multiplication tables. These are some of the different ways that we have thought of to help us learn them.

Thomas’s Dice

My Mum will roll both decagons and which ever two numbers they land on, I will use them for a multiplication sum. For example I got a 9 and a 5 so the question would be 5 x 9. I put the smallest number first because it is easier.

I play games on my favourite maths websites on the computer. My favourites are:

I have been using these websites for about 3 years and I use them 3 times a week.                                                                                       by Hannah

I play a card game with a friend. You need two sets of cards from 1-10.
Turn the cards face down.
Pick a card each then times them by each other.
The first one to get the answer wins the set.
You can use a multiplication grid to help you.

I play a game with my Mum, Nan and my sister. You need a set of cards with tables questions on and a set of cards with the answers. Share the answer cards out between all the players. Turn over the first tables question. Then you take it in turns to turn over the answer until someone turns over the right one. Then you shout “Snap!” If you run out of cards then you miss your go until someone finds the right answer. The winner is the one with the most questions at the end.                                

Using playing cards is fun and quick. You use a pack of cards and shuffle them. You split the pile in half  and have half each. Each person puts one card down on the table face up and the first person to shout out the answer of the two numbers multiplied together wins those cards.
It is a good game to play with a friend.

Lots of other people made different board games where you had to answer multiplication facts.

How do you try to learn and remember multiplication tables?
