A comprehensive collection of worksheets to help students develop fast and accurate recall of their multiplication and division facts.
Why Is Fast and Accurate Recall of Math Facts Important for Students?
Once your students have gained an understanding of the underlying principles of multiplication (repeated addition, groups, arrays), they can focus on speedy and accurate recall of these facts. Having these facts at their fingertips will make mental computations more efficient and will significantly assist their understanding of other mathematical concepts, such as fractions.
How Could These Worksheets Be Used?
The key to fast and accurate recall of multiplication facts is practice, practice, practice!
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 in being accurate if it takes hours to do so!
For the purposes of differentiation, you may wish to vary the time at which you introduce the speed challenge to your students. Some students will need more time to practice their recall of these facts, and the time challenge may stress them or lead to a decrease in confidence if introduced too early.

Common Core Curriculum alignment
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.2 Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × ...
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all pr...
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangul...
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
