Grade 3 plays different kinds of multiplication games to acquire their times tables facts! Card games are definitely everyone’s favourite!
These Maths fact games serve to create “muscle memory” in the brain, simultaneously making it possible for children to retain their number facts and laying the groundwork for more complicated computations and applications down the road.
Familiarity and proficiency with the basic times tables are an essential building block in math. It opens the door to multi-digit multiplication and demystifies processes like long division and simplifying fractions. It lays the foundation for algebra.
Confidence with times tables really is important for children in primary school. While it may seem tedious to practise times tables with your child at home and you might have bad memories of reciting times tables at school, by ensuring your child is confident with times tables you will be giving them some essential tools for success in maths.
