## How to read a multiplication Chart?

Example: What is the result of 3 x 4 multiplication? ?

• 1- Locate the first number in the first column of the chart (number 3 in this example)
• 2- Locate the second number in the first line of the chart (number 4 in this example)
• 3- The square corresponding to the intersection between the line of the first number and the column of the second number contains the result of the multiplication (12 in this example)

## Our tricks for learning your multiplication Chart

### Bring colour into your Chart!

You can print a multiplication Chart already colored or a Multiplication Chart black/white that you will color yourself using your favourite colors! Indeed, the color will make it easier for you to remember thanks to the visual memory process. So, let's get your felt pens!

If you decide to color your chart yourself using your own color codes, you must assign a different colour to each number.
For example: If you assign the green to the number 3, you will have to color in green the following squares: 3x3, 3x4, 3x5, 3x6, 3x7, 3x8, 3x9 (horizontal line) as well as 4x3, 5x3, 6x3, 7x3, 8x3, 9x3 (vertical line). 3x2, belongs to the 2 times table, so it will have to be colored with the color of the 2 times table. Indeed, the result of 3x2 is equal to the result of 2x3, it is therefore useless to learn both, when you know the first, you find the second.
Other example: If you assign the pink to the number 4, you will have to color in pink the following squares: 4x4, 4x5, 4x6, 4x7, 4x8, 4x9 as well as 5x4, 6x4, 7x4, 8x4, 9x4, and so on...
Note: Don't color the squares corresponding to the 1 and 10 times table because the results are very easy and you will not need to learn them by heart!

### No need to learn the whole multiplication Chart

A chart 1-10 (or 10x10), contains 100 squares, so 100 results, it may seem like a lot, but... Great news! You will see that there are many squares that you do not need to learn :) In fact, there are only 36 multiplications to be known. Find below the results of the multiplication chart that you don't need to learn.

#### 1- Don't learn duplicates:

There are many equivalent multiplications in a chart. Indeed, in a multiplication operation, you can invert the numbers while obtaining the same result..
For example: 7 x 6 = 6 x 7 = 42
So if you know the result of 6 x 7, you also know the result of 7 x 6!

Once all duplicates have been removed, there are only 55 multiplications left to learn.

#### 2- No need to learn by heart the 1 and 10 times table:

The 1 times table and the 10 times table are the 2 easiest, it is therefore useless to learn them by heart.
1 times Table: A number multiplied by 1 is always equal to the number.
Example: 1x1=1, 1x2=2, 1x3=3, 1x4=4...
10 times Table: A number multiplied by 10 is always equal to the number followed by a zero.
Example: 1x10=10, 2x10=20, 3x10=30, 4x10=40...

So you can see that, in fact, there are only 36 multiplications to learn . That's pretty good news, isn't it?
