This freebie comes with 18 colorful multiplication and division task cards, student answer sheets as well as answer keys for students to check their work. There are a mixture of multiplication word problems and division word problems. Students need to determine which skill is needed to solve the problem and then write the equation on their answer sheet. The questions cover the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables. The cards will work well in stations, individual work and for early finishers.
The best way to learn the multiplication facts is by one fact family at a time. Always begin with the 2's, the 5's and the 10's, when these are mastered, move to the squares (sometimes referred to as the doubles) which are 2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 5x5, 6x6. Then move to the remaining fact familes, 4,6,7, 8 and 9. Never start with random facts. Do not provide random fact sheets until there is a strong comfort level with the fact families. Practicing random facts rarely leads to permanent learning.
