Age Range: 7 - 11
By: Michele Papageorghiou

Which of the following tables is the 1,3,6 and 9 times tables?

  • In this investigation, children should match each of the tables below to the 1, 3, 6 or 9 times tables.

  • The values of each letter are unique to each table, i.e. C in table W does not have the same value as C in table X]

TABLE W TABLE X
H X A = A
H X F = F
H X G = G
H X C = C
H X H = H
H X J = J
H X D = D
H X I = I
H X B = B
A =
B =
C =
D =
F =
G =
H =
I =
J =
D X F = BG
D X A = D
D X D = JA
D X C = IH
D X I = AJ
D X H = FC
D X J = HI
D X G = CF
D X B = GB
A =
B =
C =
D =
F =
G =
H =
I =
J =
TABLE Y TABLE Z
C X G = BG
C X J = AF
C X H = JD
C X I = DG
C X B = C
C X C = AC
C X E = DE
C X A = BE
C X D = GD
A =
B =
C =
D =
E =
F =

H X J = GJ
H X F = BI
H X B = D
H X I = BG
H X H = F
H X G = H
H X D = GA
H X C = GB
H X A =BC
A =
