This week we are publishing a quite tricky set of maths worksheets in the Superbrain section, all about estimating on a number line.

# What’s New: Multiples of 2, 5 and 10

# What’s New: Multiplication in any order

# What’s New: Ten Times Table

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. […]

# What’s New: Two, five and ten times tables

Practice makes perfect, and this set of multiplication pages gives loads of practice for the 2x, 5x and 10x tables.
