Learning the 7 times tables
I have used
this strategy with students who are finding the seven times tables difficult
to learn and remember. (Colour coding is
also very useful).
1. Write the numbers 0 – 9 like this:
0

7

4

1

8

5

2


9

6

3

These are
the unit/ones numbers for the multiples of 7.
2. Now begin to put in the tens numbers
to complete the table like this:
0
0
x 7 =

7
1
x 7

14
2
x 7

21
3
x 7

28
4
x 7

35
5
x 7

42
6
x 7


49
7
x 7

56
8
x 7

63
9
x 7

3. Notice how the pattern continues:
0
0
x 7
70
10
x 7

7
1
x 7
77
11
x 7

14
2
x 7
84
12
x 7

21
3
x 7
91
13
x 7

28
4
x 7
98
14
x 7

35
5
x 7
105
15
x 7

42
6
x 7
112
16
x 7


49

x 7
119
17
x 7

56
8
x 7
126
18
x 7

63

133
