Learning the six times table is a must for any KS3 Maths student. It involves multiplying numbers by 6. There are various ways of doing this. Taking 8 x 6 as an example, we could multiply the 8 by 5 to get 40 and then add another 8 to reach 48. But that takes a little time. Learning the times tables off by heart will things a lot easier for you!

Six is a number you'll come across a lot. Insects such as flies, ants, beetles and wasps have six feet. There are six feet in a fathom. A fathom is a nautical measure of depth: it equals approximately 1.8 m. Volleyball and ice hockey are both played with teams of 6 players. A cube, also known as a hexahedron, has six faces, that's why there are six numbers on most dice.

Be careful when you pick your answers. If you rush you might hit the wrong one - and you wouldn't want that now would you? Practise makes perfect so keep coming back to this quiz even when you've mastered it.
