  • Mr Hammer, Kevinscicen
  • This is just the 11 times table with a decimal point in it. This is a waste of time. It would be better if it had instead of "11" tables it could have 1.45.

  • Amanda Price, Australia
  • I think this is a great task. I am a maths teacher and have never thought of giving decimal times tables.
  • Transum,
  • There are many ideas on the Transum website for learning multiplication facts. Go to our main Times Tables page to see the range of activities on offer including the extremely popular Tablesmaster, Fast Factors, Table Legs, Flash Tables, Tables Dash, Tables Grab and Expedite. Lots of variety is the order of the day when learning any times table.

Note to teacher: Doing this activity once with a class helps students develop strategies. It is only when they do this activity a second time that they will have the opportunity to practise those strategies. That is when the learning is consolidated.

Laptops In Lessons

Teacher, do your students have access to computers such as tablets, iPads or Laptops?  This page was really designed for projection on a whiteboard but if you really want the students to have access to it here is a concise URL for a version of this page without the comments:

However it would be better to assign one of the student interactive activities below.
