*Print out your own free printable multiplication table. I’ve included both a completed and a blank table so that your child can complete the blank table and practice all the multiplication facts from 1×1 up to 10×10. *

### What is the multiplication table?

The multiplication table is simply an organized list of all of the times tables, from x1 up to x10.

### How to use your free printable multiplication table

#### Get familiar with the multiplication table

Before using the multiplication table with your child, make sure to talk with her about how it’s organized. Show her how to run her finger across a row and down a column to find the answer to a multiplication problem. For example, to find the answer to 4 × 5, show her how she can run her finger horizontally across the 4 row and vertically down the 5 row. The place where her fingers meet (20) is the answer to 4×5.

(Some children have trouble keeping a straight line as they trace with their fingers. If your child has trouble with this, have him put a ruler under the row to keep his place.)

#### Look for patterns

Invite your child to look for patterns in the multiplication table. For example, if you draw a diagonal from the top left corner to the bottom right corner, the answers on either side of the diagonal are the same. Why?

Your child may also notice skip-counting patterns in the rows and columns, or she may notice that the diagonal from the top left corner to the bottom right corner is all the square numbers.

#### Complete the blank table

Have your child practice the times tables by completing the blank multiplication table. Encourage her to use stepping-stone facts she completes neighboring squares. For example, 3×4 is 3 groups of 4. So 4×4 will be just one group of 4 more: 16.

For some reason I can’t download the multiplication array? It won’t download on my phone!

Thanks for letting me know, Jessica. It should be working now.

Happy Math!

Kate

I am unable to download the multiplication dot array. I am only able to download the blank tables. I really like your approach to teaching the multiplication tables.

Hi Jessica,

Sorry that the link wasn’t working on the dot array! It’s fixed now, so go ahead and give it another try.

Thanks for letting me know, and happy math!

Kate

Thank you very much for sharing. My son will benefit a lot on this array.

Thank You

Hi there! The link to the array won’t download for me. Can you help? Thank you!

Hi Morgan,

Sorry you’re having trouble with the download! Try it on a desktop computer. If that doesn’t work, you can send me an email at the Contact link (above, under About in the menu), and I’ll get it to you.

Happy Math!

Kate,

This is great and I downloaded the dot array and L-cover, but where is your completed and blank multiplication table download?

Hi Andy,

Whoops, I must have copied and pasted the wrong text for the link! Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know. The link above should work now, but please feel free to send me an email (at the Contact form, under About in the menu) if you find it doesn’t work.

Happy Math!

Kate

You really need a row and a column for 0 since 0 does get misunderstood and really does come up a lot.

Thank you for this helpful resource. Your effort is greatly appreciated! 🙂

Kate, can’t get the completed and blank multiplication tables to work–won’t download to m y email.

Sorry they’re not working for you, Linda! Please send me an email at the contact link above (under About), and I’ll be happy to send them your way.
