Daily Multiplication Quiz

Updated on December 26, 2014

Watch Your Child's Progress in Memorizing the Multiplication Tables with these Daily Quizzes

These multiplication quizzes measure your child's progress in memorizing the multiplication times tables, cover (almost) all of the times tables (through 12 x 12) (except for 0, 1, some 2s and some 3s), and come in 5 different formats. And, the 5 multiplication quizzes are right here - ready for you to copy and paste!

Why Memorize the Multiplication Times Tables?

Memorizing the multiplication tables is essential for every 3rd, 4th and 5th grade student. If the times tables are not mastered by the end of 5th grade, it's probably not going to happen. Why? Because math then escalates into abstraction, never to return to the finite world of tangible numbers in the same focused way, and the average curriculum begins to focus more on reading and writing rather than math and sciences.

But, how do you help your child learn the multiplication times tables? Well, I suggest using lots of strategies, and especially using your child's favorite method more often. Go to my Horse Crazy Multiplication for more ideas.

However, we - along with our children - love to see our PROGRESS when climbing a mountain. And the Multiplication Times Tables are no different! Also, so often in the memorizing process, we feel like our child has mastered a times table, only to seemingly forget it next week when he/she is trying to memorize a different times table!

How to Use these Multiplication Quizzes

When I went to write a quiz for my daughter on her multiplication times tables, I found that I inevitably would leave out some of the times tables. Sometimes I'd give her too many 4's tables, and not enough 8's times tables, etc. So, I created a 1-page quiz that has EVERY multiplication times table on it!

And, I created a different quiz for each day of the week - each with EVERY multiplication times table on it. So, it became a DAILY Multiplication Quiz.

Then, I created a quiz for just the easy times tables, and a quiz for just some of the times tables, so that kids who hadn't yet learned all 12 multiplication times tables could still do a daily multiplication quiz.

Here's how to use the Daily Multiplication Quizzes:

1. Usually, I have the student do some warm-ups. For example: I have the child write the 8's products in columns six times.

2. Then, the child gets out the timer and goes to town on the quiz.

3. When the child's done with the quiz, he/she writes his/her time at the top of the quiz (along with the date).

4. Then, the child enters the date and quiz time in a chart that records his/her Daily Multiplication Quiz times.

5. The chart has a column for "Notes" - meaning things like, "Yahoo! Best Score Ever!"

6. 3 minutes is the "mastery" mark. When your child can do the Daily Multiplication Quiz consistently (5+ consecutive days) in under 3 minutes, then your child has mastered those Multiplication Times Tables. If your child is on Level 1 or 2 of the quizzes, then move him/her up to the next level. If your child is on Level 3 Quiz, then move your child on to the Daily Division Quiz.

Let your child take ownership of this Multiplication Daily Quiz process! You'll be amazed at the self-motivation and self-confidence that will come from your child doing this process on his/her own without our hovering!

Multiplication Wrap-Ups are a Great Practice Tool!

Learning Wrap-ups Multiplication Keys, Yellow

I really like Wrap-Ups. It connects the brain and the hands in a way that paper and pencil can not. I also like that the child can check his/her own work by checking the string on the back. I also like that it focuses the child on one times table at a time. So, your child can focus on the "6's" until he/she has mastered them!

 

Yahtzee! - The Best Multiplication Practice Game

Why do I love Yahtzee to teach multiplication? Because if a child is struggling with multiplication, then the dots on the dice are there to help the child count. If the child knows multiplication, but hasn't mastered the memorization of it yet, then this is great fun practice! And, Yahtzee! uses logic and addition - what a great bonus!

      It's so important to have our kids memorize their math facts and not simply be at the mercy of electronic brains! I still use my memorized times tables today.

      Yes, it is great. This is so important. You're right. If they don't learn it by fifth grade it's not happening.

      We had to memorize it at school. My boys are only 5 and 7 so not at that stage yet.

      For some reason it was hard for me to memorize the time tables. However, when I got it I had it even today it's a snap.

      Nicely done. I am currently teaching my 3rd grader his multiplication tables.

      Even at my age now I am grateful that I memorized my multiplication tables. Both of my children are grown, but I very much remember helping them learn their multiplication tables, giving them timed tests and finding ways to help them see the practical use of the tables. We played (and still do play) Yahtzee all of the time, but I never thought about using it as a multiplication teaching aide. Just goes to show how once the tables are memorized, we use them automatically :)

      Learning the multiplication table is important. I'm not into math, but multiplication is one of the few math functions I use as an adult on a regular basis.
