Multiplication is one of the most difficult concepts for young children to master. Unless it involves very small numbers like 2×2, it is an abstract concept that is difficult to visualize. It involves new rules, memorization and the ability to work quickly. The timed multiplication tests given in class can be intimidating for many students, causing unneeded stress and anxiety. One way that you can help your child prepare for quizzes and tests without stress is by giving them free printable worksheets to practice multiplication at home. Use these worksheets to work along with your child to help him or her master difficult math concepts. We also provide worksheets for other types of math as well, including addition, subtraction, division, fractions and more. Your child can work on these sheets at his or her own pace without worrying about timers, racing against other students or feeling the teacher peering over their shoulder.
Practice Multiplication in Groups Using Worksheets
Teachers, group work often helps students who lag behind master difficult concepts. Even with as much training as you have, some things just don’t click until a friend or classmate explains them. By providing structured time for group work and these free printable multiplication worksheets, your students can practice multiplication together. When giving these to your students, be sure to set an amount of time for completion, but remind them that it isn’t a race to see who can finish first. This should prevent the overzealous students from completing all the work just to be the group that finishes first. Go around visiting with each group to ensure that all students are learning how to do their multiplication tables. After the worksheets are completed, review them in class and allow the students to ask questions about any difficult problems they may have missed.
