A multiplication chart is a table that shows the product of two numbers that have been multiplied. The grid format has one set of numbers written along the top of the chart and another set of numbers written along the left side.
An array of numbers is included, representing the product of multiplying a number from the side of the chart with a number at the top.
How to Read a Multiplication Chart
In order to use a multiplication chart to find a particular multiplication fact, here are some simple steps for students to follow:
- Determine the factors of the problem.
- Find the first factor in the numbers listed in the column on the left-hand side of the multiplication chart.
- Find the second factor of the problem in the numbers listed on the top row of the multiplication chart.
- Using your fingers, trace along the row that begins with the first factor until you reach the column that starts with the second factor. The square where these two numbers meet is the product!
