If you are familiar with the 12×12 multiplication table, you may skip the theory part and head down to take the math quiz and test your knowledge.
INTRODUCTION:
The multiplication table (also known as times table) is a mathematical grid scheme that contains the results of the multiplication of 2 integer numbers up to a certain degree (usually 10×10 or 12×12, but sometimes also 20×20, 25×25 or even 30×30).
While some educators think it is sufficient to memorize the multiplication table up to a degree of 9×9, others believe one should be able to memorize the times table at least up to a degree of 12×12 or even 20×20. Personally I suggest memorizing the 30×30 grid by the end of the 4^{th} grade, since you will also be able to quickly carry out decimal operations such as 2.7 x 1.8 etc.
The featured image of this article above depicts the 12×12 multiplication table as it is taught in 1st grade elementary school.
Please also note that there are other related articles (and quizzes) that test your knowledge on mastering the 20×20, the 25×25 and the 30×30 times tables.
