Multiplication tables are a great way to break into teaching multiplication. The five times tables and other small numbers prove easier to teach most elementary school students. Students will find it easy to just keep adding another digit to their last result to find the next number in the time tables. By teaching this first, you can get the students in the mood and comfortable with multiplying. The problems may occur, however, once you have reached a higher times tables than five. The trick of simply adding another digit to the last result, to find the next number in the table becomes much more difficult.
In this modern, technology lead world it is easy to overlook the importance of basic mathematics and mental arithmetic. When every mobile phone has a calculator built in, and every website automatically adds up your shopping cart, who needs to add up in their head? The fact is that mathematics is a vital life skill and as adults we know it is something we use every day in our adult lives. We know that it is essential that we teach our children how to do maths from a young age, but sometimes it is easy to overlook the simple steps we can take at home. We can all remember learning our times-tables at school - one times one is one, two times two is four, and so on - but there was a reason why we learned this way, because it works. But it is not just about learning the times tables in sequence through repetition, it is important to get kids practicing with varying levels of multiplication problem. Working through problems and then checking the answers afterwards is a simple way to practice multiplying numbers.
