# Learn multiplication tables in a structured manner (grade 3 math) - very effective!

## By Math Mammoth

This method (I call it a structured drill) allows children to learn the multiplication tables in grade 3 or 4 faster and much more effectively than random drilling!

My book Math Mammoth Multiplication 1 at http://www.mathmammoth.com/multiplica... uses this method also. The book covers both the concept of multiplication and the practice of all the tables. It is available both as an instant download and as printed copy.

In the video, I use the table of 3 as an example and go through this three-step method.

In the first step, children memorize the skip-counting list. For the table of 3 this is: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36. They also practice saying it backwards, from 36 to 3.

In the second step, we work with the table itself, but it is written in order so the child can see its structure. The " randomness " comes from me (the teacher) pointing to various problems in a random order. I also like to point out certain benchmark facts to students: 10 x 3 is 30 and 5 x 3 = 15 are such facts because they're in the 10s table and in the 5s table, which the children probably have learned first.

We also practice the tables " backwards " where the " answers " are written and the student tells how many times 3 they are. For example, I point to ___ x 3 = 24, and the child is supposed to say " 8 " . This type of practice makes children learn basic division facts at the same time without realizing it! This really helps third grade students because division is also a topic for third grade math.
