Multiplication and Division Speed Drill Worksheets – Facts of 5

PDF | 4 pages|Grades: 3 - 6

A set of worksheets to help students develop fast and accurate recall of the five times tables.

Use these multiplication and division worksheets to help your students become more familiar with the five times table.

Why Is Fast and Accurate Recall of the Times Tables Important for Students?

Once your students have gained an understanding of the underlying principles of multiplication (repeated addition, groups, arrays), is it time to focus on speedy and accurate recall of these facts. Having these facts at their fingertips will make mental computations more efficient and will significantly assistant their understanding of other mathematical concepts, such as fractions.

What Does This Resource Contain?

This resource contains:

  • one page of 80 multiplication questions for the five times table
  • one page of 80 multiplication and division questions for the five times table
  • answers for both sets of questions.

How Could This Resource Be Used?

The key to fast and accurate recall of multiplication facts is practise, practise, practise!

Provide these worksheets to your students to work on at home during the week. At the end of the week, provide them with the same worksheet and time how long it takes them to complete the questions. Remember, the focus is to achieve both speed and accuracy. Remind your students that there is no point completing quickly if the answers are incorrect. Similarly, there is little point being accurate if it takes hours to do so!

For the purposes of differentiation, you must wish to vary the time at which you introduce the speed challenge to your students. Some students will need more time to consolidate their recall of these facts, and the time challenge may stress them or lead to a decrease in confidence if introduced too early.
