Tips to help you with your Maths

There are all sorts of techniques you can use to help improve you or your child’s Maths.

When you are learning your tables, have you tried saying out loud 6 x 6 = 36, 6 x 8 = 48.

Notice the rhyme. Six sixes are 36, six eights are forty eight. Two more tables learnt!

Notice the pattern in 9x tables eg. 1 x 9 = 9, 2 x 9 = 18, 3 x 9 = 27, 4 x 9 = 36

Each time add 10 to the answer and subtract 1:   9 + 10 = 19 take away 1 = 18, 18 + 10 = 28 take away 1 = 27 and so on.
