Times Tables Games

It's really important to learn your times tables. Here is an article that explains why.

The government says that you need to know all of your times tables by the end of Year 4. Knowing your times tables means to be able to correctly answer a times table question in under three seconds (you don't have time to work it out!).

You should also know related facts, for example if you know that:

6 x 4 = 24

Then you should also know:

24 ÷ 6 = 4

24 ÷ 4 = 6

60 x 4 = 240

40 x 6 = 240

0.6 x 4 = 2.4

                                                                        0.4 x 6 = 2.4    etc.

 

And always remember the words of Sir Bobby: "Practice makes permanent."
