In today’s post we will talk about **multiplication tables**. Usually a dense and complex issue, because we have to memorize all the tables, sometimes using songs or rhymes helps to remember them more easily.

Here we are offering you a few **tricks that make learning multiplication tables a more dynamic and fun task.**

###### Basic multiplication operations to fill out multiplication tables (addition, double and half):

Let’s see an example with the Table for 2:

We have emptied a table for you to try any number, it can be of 2 figures, as well…

Try it! You will see how easy it is.

###### Multiplication tables of 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 on your hands:

Using our fingers, we can complete several operations very easily, in this case we will see how to get all the results with the tables for 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10.

First we assign each finger on each hand a number from 6 to 10:

Then we choose a multiplication that we want to perform, for example **7 x 8**, and place the fingers corresponding to these two numbers together:

Now we will begin to find the result, first the number in the tens place:

And now the single units which go in the ones place:

Try it with another combination!!!

###### The multiplication table for 9 “up and down”:

Once we have joined them, we place the results in the table:

If this trick doesn’t seem easy to you or you do not have a paper and pencil to do it, there is another trick to do the whole 9 table with your fingers:

###### 9 multiplication table with your fingers:

First we list the fingers of the hand from 1 to 10:

We are going to find how **9 x 7 **equals

We lower the finger that corresponds to 7

We count to finger 7 and we have the Tens place.

We count after finger 7 and we have the Ones place.

And here are the tricks to have fun with multiplication tables, I hope that they have helped you and, above all, that you had learned!

I think this is very helpful towards children who need help in Mathematics,especially those who have dreams that include learning or improving their Maths.

It also affects us as parents because we want our children to succeed and of those who want to continue learning Mathematics as an individual should be able to succeed for their future needs.

God bless and Thank you Smartick.
