By age 12, children should have mastered multiplication tables to the point where they can implement them in solving long multiplication problems, according to KidSpot. Children ages 9 and 10 begin learning their times tables and develop an understanding of number sentences to represent multiplication facts.
Times table grids, singing, rhymes and story cards are good teaching tools for 9- and 10-year olds when learning multiplication facts, explains KidSpot. Singing and rhymes can help children memorize multiplication tables better if they have an auditory learning style. Learning to write sentences based on real-life experiences using multiplication tables can encourage visualization skills and oral listening during the learning process.
