Multiplication is a way of adding numbers together multiple times. It’s an important math skill that we learn when we’re young. This teaching guide will further aid in teaching the multiplication table in a better way!
Multiplication table (also called the time’s table), gives the multiples of numbers. We can learn the multiplication table in different ways. The table of multiplication can be obtained by multiplying a number with a set of whole numbers. We can also use repeated addition, which means adding the same number over and over again. Another way is skip counting, where we count by a certain number each time.
Shown below is the multiplication table chart of 2-times table. It helps us see the multiples of number 2. For example, if we multiply 2 by the numbers 1, 2, 3, and so on, we get 2, 4, 8, and so on.
It also shows repeated addition of 2. The multiplication table shows us all these results in an organized way.
Knowing the multiplication table is really useful for doing math problems quickly. It’s like having building blocks that help us solve bigger math problems, like fractions and exponents.
Here, we have the multiplication tables from 1 to 20 for you to practice and learn. Memorizing these tables is an important step in mastering basic math.

Learning multiplication tables can be made enjoyable by incorporating interactive games and activities.
This activity can also be easily done by parents at home with their kids using simple materials.
- Take an ice tray and use a pen or marker to write numbers from 1 to 12 on each segment.
- Get two marbles or beans and place them inside the ice tray..
- Shake the tray gently so that the marbles move around.
- Stop and observe where the marbles have landed.
- Ask the kids to write a multiplication number sentence based on the numbers where the marbles landed. For example, if one marble is in the segment number 3 and the other in segment number 4, the number sentence could be 3 x 4.
- Encourage the kids to write out the multiplication sentence using the numbers they observed.
