A knowledge of the times tables will serve you well in all levels of mathematics, including KS3 Maths. Most of us learn the times tables up to 12 but we thought you'd like a bit more of a challenge so we're going all the way up to the 20 times table. This particular quiz will test how well you know the 16 times table.
64, 160 and 288 belong in the 16 times table - quite big numbers. Mathematician, Ronald Graham, said of large numbers "The trouble with integers is that we have examined only the very small ones. Maybe all the exciting stuff happens at really big numbers, ones we can't even begin to think about in any very definite way. Our brains have evolved to get us out of the rain, find where the berries are, and keep us from getting killed. Our brains did not evolve to help us grasp really large numbers or to look at things in a hundred thousand dimensions."
Practise is the best way to get to know your times tables. Have a go at this quiz and find out how well you get on with the 16 times table.
