Using a multiplication chart is a great way to learn multiplication of numbers. It's a handy reference that with continued use helps a child memorize their multiplication facts.

Printable multiplication charts

How to use the multiplication chart:

Step One – Choose a number from the left hand column of the chart (directly under the X)

Step Two – Choose the number you want to multiply your first number with from the row across the top of the chart (directly next to the X)

Step Three – Go along the row from the left hand column number, then go directly down the column from the top row number until both the column and the row meet at one square. That is your answer.

For example…if we chose the number 6 on the left hand column (it's in blue) and the number 7 on the top row (it's in green), we would go across the row from the 6 on the side while going down the column from the number 7 at the top. The box they meet at has the number 42 in it, which tells you that 6 times 7 equals 42.

Throughout this article we have also included some extremely cute times tables to make it a bit more fun. Please enjoy!
