Interactive Times Tables and Shapes

Learning the times tables is extremely important, and this activity can quickly demonstrate any tables value. By using animated shapes children can see the patterns that make up the tables easy. This helps them conceptualize and speeds up learning.

For example the visual representation allows children to grasp very quickly that multiplication is commutative i.e 3×4 is the same as 4×3 since they can see it is just the same shapes in a different pattern.
