Here we have another in our series on multiplication and tables. This time we are looking at the ten times table. This is often thought of as the easiest table as the digits don’t change, but don’t get caught in the trap of telling your child that you ‘just add a nought’to multiply by ten. Why not? Because a whole lot of unlearning will have to take place later when decimals are introduced (3.4 x 10 is not 3.40!)
Multiplying by ten is also a great introduction into how our number system works, by moving a digit one place to the left its value increases tenfold.
