Beginner Multiplication Worksheets: Introduction to Multiplication

Before children learn times tables through rote learning for fluency, it is important they have a solid understanding of the concept of multiplication. We can help give them a solid understanding by showing them examples of it in every day life (Eg. the number of tires on a truck or counting in 5s on a clock) and by showing different ways that times tables can be represented (Eg. concrete materials, number line, arrays, groups). These worksheets aim to support this process.
