Learning the multiplication table is crucial in building a strong foundation in mathematics. But when learning something difficult, children always have one question in their mind – why learn the table when I can just count?
Well, simply ask your child to count till 10 and then tell them to ask you the answer to 5*2. Answering their question will help them understand the difference in the time it took them to count till 10 and for you to answer 5*2 and help them realize the benefit of learning the multiplication tables – speed. Knowing the tables will allow a child to solve problems of multiplication and division much faster than they would with counting.
There are various different ways to learn the multiplication tables but the best way to practice what you’ve learnt is through solving problems and these worksheets allow just that.

Positive reinforcement can go a long way when learning and so it is important to remain patient when teaching children and praise them when they perform well.
