## Times Tables

In Year 1 you should be able to count in 2's, 5's and 10's and know all doubles and halves to 10 in preparation for learning the times tables.

## What is multiplication?

Multiplying is repeated addition. The sum 10 multiply by 4 can be written as:

10 x 4 = 4

It is also the same as:

10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 40

## Working out multiplication sums

To work out a multiplication sum first find the number you can count in.

10 x 3

Lets count in tens as this is the easiest. Now count in tens using three fingers on your hand. What have we got to?

10 x 3 = 30
