Multiplication and Division
These games are brilliant for multiplication and division:
The New National Curriculum documents relevant to multiplication and division can be found here.
Songs for each times table can be found below.
This is a great link to a method of using your fingers for the 6,7,8 and 9 times table - it's tricky and is a 2 step solution but can work for some children who will never be able to get that quick recall!
Don't forget the pattern of the units in the times tables will really help you:
4's looking at the units you will notice that there is a pattern - 4, 8, 2, 6, 0 - this is repeated, this means that if you are not quite sure what the next number is in the 4's you can take a guess by just remembering the pattern!
5's the pattern is 5,0
6's the pattern is 6,2,8,4,0
7's -there is no pattern that's why they are so hard to learn
8's the pattern is 8,6,4,2,0
9's the digits always add up to 9 e.g.9, 18 (1+8=9), 27 (2+7=9)
10's always end in 0
There are also some rhymes that you can remember to help you with the 4 difficult ones!
Wakey, wakey rise and shine seven sevens are 49
I ate and ate and was sick on the floor
eight eights are 64
7x8=56 and 8x7 = 56
write the digits in the correct order e.g. 5678 then add the symbols 56=7x8
