We won’t lie to you, there’s a lot to remember with times tables. But you’re not silly, you knew that. That’s why you’re here to learn them.
Let’s start with the good news. You see, times tables are not actually as complicated as they first look. For the most part, it’s all about memorising the answers.
You won’t always have to calculate multiplication sums in your head every time, like if somebody asks you what 5 x 7 is (35, if you were wondering. That’s right, we’ve still got it!) - you’ll just know.
For extra help, most of the quizzes have a link at the bottom to the relevant BBC Bitesize page.
When you master your times tables, you’ll be the envy of every budding mathematician. Who doesn’t want to walk around answering sums left, right and centre like they’ve got a calculator brain? We certainly do! But you’ve got to practise...
You’ll probably find that early on, you will have to work out the sums in your head. That’s okay. The more you do them, the more you’ll learn. Quickly, you’ll realise the answer pops into your brain before you’ve even had a chance to break it down. This means you’re starting to memorise them, woohoo!
We cover up to the 12 times tables, and students in KS2 can play our quizzes as much as they like. We've even included a mixed quiz too for maths whizz kids who master all of them!
You might be wondering why you even have to learn your times tables. Good question (it’s a good question because we know the answer). You might not see it right now, but when you’re older you’ll reach for your times tables knowledge more than you think you will. Whether you’re trying to work out how many boxes of chocolate bars to buy, or how many bags of oranges you need (we prefer the chocolate example, but we have to cater for the fruit lovers too) your times tables knowledge will come to the rescue more than once.
We can’t wait until you’re a speedy times tables champion.
Ready, set, multiplication!
