Times Tables

This year, you must know all your times tables and related divisions. A good way to learn your x tables easily is to learn them through the commutative law as detailed below:

Using the commutative law:

Aims: At the end of the series, pupils will be able to recall accurately their times tables from memory and at speed.

Getting started: Write the 0 x table in one colour, and the 1 x table in another. Ask if there are any easy ways to do the 0 and 1 x table. If they do not know it already, explain that 0 x anything is 0 and 1 x anything is anything. Write the 0 and 1 x tables , using different colours, but keeping 1 x 0 in the 1 x table the same colour as 0 x 1 in the 0 x table.

Explain the "secret" of the commutative law, that a x b = b x a, so that the first entry of the 1 x table is just the same as 0 x 1 in the 0 x table, hence they are the same colour.

Taking it further: Choose a different colour for the 2 x table. Each table has a different colour.
