We have a mathmatrick that will solve you 12 times table woes.

All you need to do, is take the number and multiply by ten (which is very straight forward as you jut add a zero).

So lets take 8 x 12.

First of all, we’d multiply this 8 by 10 to get 80.

Then, we’d multiply our original number: 8 by 2 to get 16.

Finally, add them together:

8 x 10 = 80

8 x 2 = 16

80 + 16 = 96

So your answer is 96.

This method becomes especially impressive when used with larger numbers

25 x 12

25 x 10 = 250

25 x 2 = 50

250 x 50 = 300

How Maths Teaching has Changed?

It’s funny how things have moved forward over the years. I’m showing my age slightly, but when I was growing up, I remember with some clarity (in black and white) how I was taught. There were blackboards, and dog eared text books – and pencils and pens. That’s a very...
