A Guide to the Multiplication Worksheets

Welcome to the multiplication worksheets page, repleat with that pesky x shaped symbol shared with us by the ancient Babylonians, who thankfully kept their crazy base 60 numbering system to themselves. Well except for when we get into measuring angles in degrees and units of time. Let's ignore that for now. Lousy Babylonians.

Multiplication is one of the four elementary operations, and one often challenging to learn because most of the facts cannot simply be 'counted up' or 'counted down' the way that addition or subtraction facts are solved. Because of this, many strategies for learning multiplication have evolved. This page contains multiplication worksheets that address many of these techniques for mastering the times tables, some of which may correspond to the approaches being used in your classroom or homeschool curriculum. Most students will start learning multiplication concepts in third grade, and by the end of 4th grade the times table facts through x10 should be memorized.

I provide my own rules for learning multiplication and one of the multiplication worksheet sets below focuses on that approach. But often, brute force memorization of the multiplication facts is the most obvious and fastest approach, and for better or worse, is usally the way multiplication proficiency is measured. There are various versions of timed multiplication drills, including one minute and two minute timed worksheets. You will find incremental or progressive approaches, where facts are gradually introduced and repeated. Or, look for the conventional series of worksheets which focus strictly on one set of multiplication facts at a time (for example, all the x7 facts) to the exclusion of any of the others. That's how I learned them way too many years ago in a tiny school in Beavercreek, Oregon.

A tactic taken by many schools is to have students complete a timed multiplication worksheet once per day. The multiplication worksheets used for this approach start with a few basic facts, and as the student is able to pass these tests with high levels of accuracy in one or two minutes, they advance to the next level and new multiplication facts are introduced. There are different names for these approaches including Mad Minute tests or Rocket Math, but the basic incremental strategy coupled with a daily multiplication timed test is very common.You will find different sets of timed multiplication worksheets here that should be suitable for at home practice or more structured classroom use.

No matter what tactic you take to mastering the multiplication facts, the results will come to bear when dealing with more advanced topics including multiple digit multiplication, multiplying decimals, squares, cubes and money problems.You will find multiplication worksheets on all of these topics and more in this section.

The multiplication worksheets below also include several sets of multi-digit multiplication worksheets, including ones that focus on some of the more difficult steps for multiplying two and three digit numbers.

Good luck and get multipying!
