This excellent worksheet helps you use maths mastery to teach the 10 times table, and takes children’s understanding of it to a deeper level.
It begins using pictures to establish the basics and from here takes pupils through to solving word problems and simple algebraic equations. There’s practice at spotting patterns too.
Plus, you can find the other eight mathematical mastery worksheets for times tables here.
But for this particular one just click here.
This coconut shy game can be differentiated a number of different ways. You can focus on any times table from 2 to 12, or you can play with a mixed bag of multiplication questions from 2-5, 6-12 or anything from 2-12.
You’re given five coconuts, each containing a different number, and you’ll be asked which ones are a multiple of whichever number (let’s say three, if you’re focusing on the three times table). You’re job is to throw a ball at the correct answers, and click done once you’re sure you’ve left only incorrect answers standing.
There may only be one correct answer for you to find, there may be five, so it’s sure to keep young learners on their toes.
Try this resource here.
Making maths memorable and fun for KS1 kids is always a bonus, so head on over to Miss Giraffe’s Class for a bunch of activities on teaching arrays, that involve cookies, paint, cereal and lots and lots of colours and textures for children to enjoy while they learn.
Take a look at these array activities here.
This simple idea is great for those just getting to grips with multiplication.
It’s a puzzle where you drag and drop the pieces into place with the
help of some basic sums.
Give it a go here.
Here’s a novel idea that kids will love (and that’s a darn sight better for them than the real thing) – french fry facts.
It’s actually an addition activity but it’s easily adaptable, the aim is to find different ways of making numbers.
So by cutting yellow paper into strips to make french fry counters, children can come up with multiplication facts and drop the fries into the correct box/sachet/packet/whatever you call the little cardboard sleeves fried come in at fast food restaurants.
Feast on this fact-filled and fun freebie here.
You and your pupils will be familiar with a multiplication grid, but the joy of these interactive iteration is that you can pick which times table(s) to focus on and click the correct box for where each answer should go.
So in the image above, for example, the blue highlighted squares are the ones that need filling in as we’ve opted to just answer 3 and 4 times table questions.
So it will give us answers like 12, 27, 24 and 18 and ask us to click where on the grid they should go. Sometimes, of course, there will be a number of places it could go, other times there will be only two options.
The ultimate challenge, of course is to fill out the entire grid, with the 1-10 times tables, without losing a life. But it’s set up perfectly for pupils to get to that at their own pace.
