How to read the RiverTimes multiplication Chart?
To find the result of a multiplication, simply look for the intersection between the horizontal line corresponding to the first multiplication number and the vertical line corresponding to the 2nd number. You can dragg your finger along the line to the intersection if that helps.
Example: What is the result of 3 x 4 multiplication?
- 1- Locate the horizontal line corresponding to the first number (number 3 in this example)
- 2- Locate the vertical line corresponding to the second number (number 4 in this example)
- 3- The result of the multiplication is in the square located at the intersection of the 2 lines (12 in this example)
You will notice that if you do the same thing for the multiplication 4 x 3 you will find the same result at the intersection, indeed 3 x 4 = 4 x 3. This is what we call the commutative property of multiplications!
Our tricks for learning your multiplication Tables from 1 up to 12
No need to learn the whole multiplication Chart
There are many duplicates 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!
There is therefore no need to learn duplicates. It is also not necessary to learn by heart the 1 Time and 10 Times tables because they are very easy! Once all duplicates have been removed (as well as the 1 Time and 10 Times tables) there are only 55 multiplications left to learn (instead of 144)!
