Y3: 3, 4 and 8
Y4: All times tables to 12 x 12
Which times tables and division facts do you know inside-out and back-to-front?
You know a times table inside out and back to front if you can do the following confidently…
- count on and back in steps of the multiple from 0 to the twelfth multiple, e.g. 0, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48
- count on and back in multiples of 10, e.g. 0, 40, 80, 120…
- count on and back in tenths, e.g. 0, 0.4, 0.8, 1.2, 1.6…
- answer random quick-fire (5-10 seconds) multiplication facts, e.g. 6 x 4 = ?, 40 x 6 = ?, 6 x ? = 24, ? x 60 = 240, 7 x 0.4 = ?
- answer quick-fire division facts e.g. 44 ÷ 4 = ?, 44 ÷ ? = 4, ? ÷ 40 = 7, 2.1 ÷ 7 =
- write 4 corresponding multiplication and division facts, e.g.
Chose one times table you’d like to improve each week; work on it by doing the following:
- Write out the multiples in order, up to the 12th multiple
- Count on and back in steps of the multiple
- Cover the multiples one by one until you can recite them without looking
- Learn the 2nd, 10th and 5th multiples by heart; also learn the square number by heart – the number multiplied by itself. If you know these, you can quickly work out the other facts
- Shuffle a set of 0-12 cards and place them face down. Turn one card over at a time and multiply by your chosen times table, e.g. 5; the questions are then in random order: 8 x 5, 0 x 5, 12 x 5. Use the facts you already know to help you work out the ones you don’t.
How many can you do in 30 seconds?
How long does it take you to do the whole set of cards?
Can you beat your own time?
Make sure someone is using a tables square to check that the answers are correct.
