Multiplication is used in many math concepts, such as fractions and division. Developing a strong foundation of multiplication skills will assist in many areas of mathematics. It is like building a house. If the foundation is not solid, the house may fall apart. As with any skill, practice is key! I have created some worksheets that can be printed and used as timed drills. Starting to practice their times tables at an early age is very important in developing strong fundamental skills in math.
Once students develop their multiplication skills and they are able to demonstrate their ability, they will feel confident. This confidence will in turn help foster and strengthen their appreciation for mathematics, which will help them be successful as they progress in their studies. Students tend to like subjects that they are doing well in, and they do well in subjects that they like. They also need to see the importance of mathematics and how it can be used in everyday life. Students need to see the relevance of everything that they are learning. Please refer to the Multiplication Activities page to find useful tips to help improve math skills. I hope this website helps you become a multiplication wizard!
