Teaching the Multiplication Table

Hi! I am new to this forum

I have been working on methods to help students learn their multiplication tables, and have come here seeking constructive criticism.

The page is here: Learn Your Multiplication Tables

And if you would like to test out the "Math Trainer" (mentioned on the page) and tell me what you think of it, that would be good too.

I have been searching for websites to help my son learn his multiplication tables. I was excited to find a site that told some of the shortcuts for different numbers. I knew there was some but I didn't know them all. My son does so much better if there is some logic behind things. Thanks.

Learning multiplication tables

Did you check out QuickMathFacts? It's the download pick of the week on this site. It runs timed tests on any chosen set of math facts. It uses the 12 by 12 table, just like the "Learn your multiplication tables" link, but you can choose specific rows, or a range of rows, to work on. Many teachers find that kids learn math facts best in timed tests, because they enjoy competing with themselves and it motivates them to speed up, which can only be achieved by committing the facts to memory. It saved my son's life in 5th grade when he struggled with long division and fractions because he didn't know his multiplication facts. Using the program, it took him only 3 weeks to learn all his tables. He really went after it and it boosted his confidence in math at school

Have you ever heard of Kumon math. It is an international organization that has been helping children for years to become proficient in numeration. It is an asian rote learning method that builds on fundamentals. Most sites work like this. You attend the Kumon centre and do a test; based on speed and accuracy. Then you take home daily sheets of Kumon to do at home timed. You then bring them back and do another test. Your progress is tracked individually and tailored to how well you are doing. My children have done Kumon for 5 years now. My 12 year old is doing grade 10 math, and my 9 year old is doing grade 6-7 math. It is amazing!! The other thing I like about it is that it is not flashy or colourful. It is boring. It teaches children to focus without having to be fed by colour candy on paper.

Learn Multiplication using Hip Hop

Hi everyone!
My name is Zeshan, I am part of a crew of indie musicians from Melbourne Australia that put together the Hip Hop Times Tables. We have developed an Audio workbook that takes a child through their first 12 multiplication tables. We provide the kids with tricks, clues and loads of encouragement. The audio book also comes with a visual learning aid. You can hear samples and buy at these places online

I have also found a website to help my daughter learn her math. She has been doing free math exercises on beestar.org. These math exercises are very interesting and she loves them very much! The honor roll makes her work hard, and the email from beestar to me weekly let me know clearly what level is my daughter on. Besides, there are some other exercises like English Language Art, science, etc in beestar. May be you can have a try. Hope it helps you.

My kids are using the RocketMath program at school for multiplication and I had a lot of trouble finding practice worksheets apart from the single sheet per set that was coming home. I generated multiple variants of each group for this series plus other conventional ones and posted them here...

Times Tables Learning

My website http://www.geocities.com/multiplicationfacts has some simple drills, online.
The best Times Tables learning tool I've ever seen is found at this link:http://www.bigbrainz.com/index.php?PARTNER=brettstaylor

It is free for the base version which teaches all the facts and is fun for kids to play. It is a video game format and was programmed by a PlayStation game designer.
