We've already looked at the doubling strategy for our two and four times tables. Now let's look at how we can use a similar strategy to help us learn the six times tables.
We learnt that multiplying a number by 3 is the same as tripling a number. There are $3$3 equal groups.
Here are $3$3 groups of $4$4:
If we double the number of groups, how many groups are there?
There are now $6$6 groups of $4$4!
Let's learn more about the doubling strategy by watching a video.
