## Spotlight on Multiplication Tables for Kids

In mathematics, multiplication is the repeated addition of a number. Before going into depth about the topic, Do you know what a multiplication table is? Why are they important? Let’s find out!

A multiplication table is a table which shows the product of two numbers(either two single-digit numbers or 1 single-digit number and one 2-digit number or two 2-digit numbers). It ranges from 1 1 = 1 up to 10 10 = 100 or even more because there is no limit to multiplication tables. In this article, we will learn 1 to 100 tables chart.

### Significance Of Multiplication Tables

Have you ever thought, What is so special about multiplication tables? Well, It is very time-consuming to add numbers over and over again. So, if we already know how many times 2 numbers can be multiplied together, we can easily find the product of those numbers! Isn’t it?

It will also help to do math faster and more accurately. Multiplication tables are like all math tables, which are drawn up using multiplication formulas. One of the most common formulas for multiplication is the equation “x” times “y”. Multiplication is also important in many everyday situations.

For kids, It could be helpful in calculations like dividing chocolates among siblings. In our daily life, there are many situations, such as cooking, gardening and collecting data about the number of people, that can be helpful from having a multiplication table. It can also help people calculate percentages and currency values.

### Multiplication Table

The multiplication tables of 1, 2, 5, and 10 are easier to remember as they follow a pattern.

Any number multiplied by 1 will be equal to the number itself.

If any number is multiplied by 2, it will be equal to double the number.

The ones digits in the multiplication table of 5 alternate between 0 and 5.

The table of 10 can be easily remembered because the digit at the one's place is always zero.

### Classroom Activities

Learning multiplication tables becomes easier for children when they learn them in a fun way or the form of activities. Few classroom activities are there which can be performed in the classroom and will help kids to learn multiplication tables more easily.

Back to Back: This Game requires some extra brain power, as it requires finding a multiplier of the number instead of a product.

Materials Required: Blackboard or Whiteboard (with chalk or markers).

Steps

Ask two students to stand in front of the board facing away from each other.

At your “start “ signal, each student will write a number between 1-10 (you can increase the range) on the board.

Ask another student to come in front of the board, assume a number in mind, and announce the product of two numbers (make sure that the answer is correct).

If the first player can guess the other student’s assumed number, he wins the round.

The student who “won” the round will stay on the board, and the person who “loses” the round will be replaced with another student.

The student who won the most rounds in a row is the winner.
