6. Multiplication strategies

Lesson

Before you practice the times tables from 0 to 10, take some time to review the 2 and 4 times tables , as well as the 5 and 10 times tables . Remember we can use strategies we've learnt in some of our earlier times tables, including:

double (\times \,2) and double, double (\times \,4)

halving the 10 times tables to work out (\times \,5)

We also looked at how to solve the 8 times tables , 3 times tables , 6 times tables , 7 times tables and 9 times tables .

Find the value of 8 \times 3.

Worked Solution
