Confession : I did not have my times tables memorized until I started teaching multiplication to my son...sad, I know.
Fact is, in school I was "taught" by flash cards and was tested by timed multiplication drills in which I had to write down the answers to as many multiplication facts before the timer ran out. Needless to say, I crumbled under pressure and could not finish one sheet before everyone else was done or had a majority of them completed. Throughout the rest of my school years, I despised math.
I am sure that we can all agree that there are different ways of learning math and not all work for everyone.
We're all ready for a new way of learning the times tables. Happily, inventive educators have created a multitude of activities to help learners succeed, have fun, and appreciate how times tables fit into everyday life!
Educents rounded up some of the most engaging times table activities that serve all sorts of learning (and teaching!) styles, including video, music, printable worksheets, dominos, and more.
