## Why Kids Can’t Remember Times Tables

So we took a look at how kids had been learning their multiplication number facts (Times Tables) in the past. We found that generally they had not really been taught multiplicative thinking. Instead they had been given timed, drill focussed worksheets.  How stressful!

We realised that most of the printables and worksheets consisted of lines of problems that could only really be solved if you already knew the answer!

For example the problem  4 x 8 = ? can only be solved if you understand what ‘times (x)’ means in the number sentence or if you have memorised the answer during times tables drills! If you don’t have this information you have no way of coming up with the right solution!

Drills are a necessary part of learning times tables, but they will not TEACH kids the tables. Drills can speed up the response to the tables that children do know but will not help them to learn the tables they don’t know.

So drill practice must come after your kids have learnt their times tables and understand the multiplication process.
