## Why Learning Multiplication Tables is Important

We use multiplication in our every day life. When we go shopping for groceries, we often like to compare the cost of similar items or how much it will cost to buy multiple items.

I'm constantly battling the super markets packaged pricing to work out  if my favored yogurts are at a good price.

My kids love our local sweet shop. I give them 50p and let them work out how many of their favorite candies they can buy if each one costs 5p.

When we are cooking and need to make our winning recipe for a set number of guests we need to know how to multiply quantities to ensure we make enough food.

Multiplication is used every day of our lives whether we are aware of it or not.

Yes we may have smart phones and mobile devices with calculators on but having the ability to quickly perform some basic multiplication in our heads is essential.

Multiplication is the foundation for learning different aspects of mathematics such as division, algebra, long multiplication, and fractions.

These printable multiplication tables are a great aid to assist learners to remember their times tables.
