## Division Facts

Division facts are the opposite of times tables.  For some students, the process of learning the times tables automatically means that they know the division facts.  Other students need to learn the division facts more explicitly. Knowing division facts makes long division much easier. It's worth it for students to learn these facts.

## Multiplication (2 by 1 digit)

Times tables are great for multiplying one-digit (and select two-digit) numbers. But, once we get into larger numbers, it's important to understand how multiplication works when numbers have multiple digits.  We typically use a number of algorithms for doing multiplication -- namely we multiply all digits of multipliers by all digits of multiplicands.  The processes become automatic, but it's very helpful for students to understand why we have to multiply each digit by each each digit.

## Multiplication (Times tables)

**Note: A huge part of learning times tables is practice.  Scroll down for a blank times table chartworksheets (40 and 100 problem sets), times table sprints (for competitive practice), and times table tesselations (for artistic practice).**

Multiplication is the process of adding groups, multiple times.  It's a streamlined and faster way to add, if you need to add the same number repeatedly.
