## The Multiplication Table (Times Tables) - Foundation of Mathematics

The multiplication table is the cornerstone of the world of mathematics. It forms the foundation for mathematics in elementary school. For example, important calculations in everyday life, such as percentage calculations, are not possible without knowing the times tables. Therefore, the multiplication table must be practiced extensively. In the beginning, children are only familiar with addition and subtraction, so the multiplication table quickly becomes a challenge. **Division and multiplication** are initially very abstract and difficult to imagine for children. But a secure mastery of the basic arithmetic operations is essential even for attending secondary school or for more complex calculations such as fraction calculations. For effective practice and to facilitate the entry into the times tables, playful calculating with the abacus can be a great help.

On the one hand, children need to understand the principle behind it in order to apply it correctly. On the other hand, they should memorize the times tables in order to be able to recall the knowledge quickly and securely. **The times tables** are an absolute must that cannot be avoided! But all difficulties can be overcome because practice makes perfect! And we provide you and your child with helpful practice materials for the times tables.

### Tips for Learning the Times Tables

Learning the times tables requires regular practice as well as effective learning strategies. Here are some tips that can make learning the times tables more effective for children:

**Integration of playful elements:**Integrate games and activities into the lessons to practice the times tables in a playful way. Games like our multiplication domino, times tables clapping, or our small multiplication board "Montessori Premium" make learning entertaining and motivating.**Practical applications in everyday life:**Show children how the times tables are used in everyday life, such as when shopping, cooking, or calculating pocket money. This makes the practical use of the times tables clear and arouses interest in learning.**Individual support:**Take into account the different learning needs of the children and offer individual support. Some children learn better with a ring board, while others benefit more from a times tables dice game.**Positive reinforcement:**Praise children for their progress and successes in learning the times tables. Positive reinforcement motivates students and strengthens their confidence in their mathematical abilities.

### Measuring Progress in Learning the Times Tables

It is important to monitor progress in learning the times tables closely to ensure that students achieve their goals and improve their understanding. Teachers and parents can use various methods to measure children's learning progress.

This includes regular tests, checking homework, observing learning behavior, and evaluating oral contributions in class. In addition, the time it takes for students to solve specific times tables tasks can also be measured. This can be particularly helpful in playful activities such as times tables races or quiz games but should not be the sole evaluation method. It is important to ensure that the focus is not solely on speed but also on understanding and accuracy of solutions.

## Why Do Times Tables Games Help with Learning?

Times tables games offer your students an interactive and enjoyable approach to practice and reinforce the times tables. Through playful activities, children are motivated and develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Games also boost students' confidence and allow them to learn in a relaxed and playful environment. Furthermore, times tables games provide a change from traditional teaching methods and help increase the joy of learning.

## Choosing the Best Times Tables Games

The times tables are very important, and it is not uncommon for students to initially struggle with them. Therefore, it is not surprising that the range of **practice materials** is extensive. To help you keep track, we present you with the best learning materials.

For a particularly child-friendly approach, there are **times tables games**. For example, the set card game for the cardboard computer. With this, your child can practice the times tables outside of school on their own. First, the cardboard computer is folded. There is a slot at the top into which the cards are inserted. They fall through and slide out again upside down at the bottom. The cards contain times tables tasks. The child can then calculate the solution themselves and then check the result. This way, students can also assess for themselves how well they have mastered the times tables. In addition, independent work and learning are also practiced.

### Times Tables Charts

Practical aids for practicing the times tables are **flexible charts** made of soft, foldable plastic film. They are more durable than cardboard or paper and offer a long service life. The charts support learning the times tables as well as solving tasks involving fractions, percentages, and decimals. Each set contains a chart for multiplication and one for fractions, percentages, and decimals. The multiplication table serves as a calculation and control aid, while the chart for fractions, percentages, and decimals facilitates comparison and understanding of these. By simply folding, students can reproduce the values and check them independently.

### Times Tables Board Games

A popular board game for practicing the times tables is the Compact Ring Board, Complete Set. It is suitable for the 1st to 6th grades and offers an interactive experience for practicing the times tables. The set consists of a wooden board with numbers 1 - 100 and 100 ring-shaped millings, wooden box, and wooden rings in 10 colors. Black rings represent prime numbers. It supports understanding the number range up to 100 and learning multiplication tables and prime numbers.

### Times Tables Dice

Another practical teaching aid for the times tables is **times tables dice**. These dice are printed with the numbers of the times tables and offer a playful way to practice the times tables. Students can roll the dice and calculate the multiplication of the numbers displayed. Through interactive play, mathematical understanding is promoted, and the times tables are internalized in a playful way. In addition, the dice can also be used for various game ideas and exercises in the classroom to provide variety and fun in learning.

### Times Tables Cards

Card games like the "Small Times Tables" card game also provide a playful method for learning the times tables. With appealing pictures, children internalize the times tables in a playful way and develop a visual understanding. Each number has two cards: one with the number and a motif and a solution card with a memorable story representing the times tables. By telling the stories and performing corresponding movements, children memorize the numbers better. In addition, the set includes 48 practice cards with times tables tasks that reinforce the learned knowledge and come with solutions for self- or partner control on the back. This way, students become proficient in the times tables and can actively apply their knowledge.

### Times Tables Balls

With creative teaching materials, teachers can practice and review the times tables in class. This can be achieved, for example, with the Learning Game Ball "Pello". Instead of dry exercises on the board, the times tables can be trained with catching and throwing games. The ball is printed with various tasks that the kids should solve as quickly as possible when it's their turn. With this dynamic game, you encourage students to learn the times tables well. You can also use the math learning game ball for a times tables tournament. After all, learning is much easier with movement and fun!

### Times Tables Domino

The Division Domino XL with a number range up to 100 is an ideal way for children to learn division and deepen their knowledge. The dominoes are made of sturdy cardboard and each show a division task and the corresponding solution number. Children connect tasks and solutions playfully. They can choose between different difficulty levels: either play with the blue (easy game) or the red cards (difficult game) or mix both task cards and use them together (big game), where task and solution do not always have to be linked. This promotes a deeper understanding of division and enables various solution methods.
