A simple multiplication facts grid for students to practise their times tables.
Use these multiplication grid worksheets as a mathematical warm-up activity with your students at the beginning of a maths lesson or as a weekly multiplication test.
Multiplication Facts Maths Drill
Recalling multiplication facts helps students become more fluent when solving maths problems. Implement this resource as a daily maths drill by setting a timer and having students complete the full grid. Once they finish, students write the time it took to complete the grid, and then you can mark them with the class. Students then note down how many errors they made.
Have students focus on beating their personal best, whether reducing the number of errors they made or beating their previous time.
Use Known Facts
Seeing the big empty grid may be daunting for some students. I often told my kids to first fill in the ‘easy’ squares. They can then use these known facts to help determine the adjacent squares.
Included in the resources is an extended version of the multiplication grid. This includes various multiplication facts ranging from 6 to 25. Provide this version to students who can recall multiplication facts up to 12.
