Common Questions About Multiplication Facts

Below are some common questions we’ve received from parents about multiplication concepts, but if you have other questions that you would like us to address please send us a message. If you have any questions, there are probably other parents that have the same questions, which we can ultimately address as a brief blog post or as a help video.

When is multiplication taught in school and can students start sooner?

Different math curriculum are used in various schools, so the exact grade that multiplication is introduced may vary between schools. The public schools in Texas follow the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standard, where multiplication concepts are introduced in the second grade, but mostly covered in the third grade and up. However, at Sqooasha, we have come across various students who have mastered their multiplication table as early as the first grade. This is typically the case for students whose parents are involved and want them to learn ahead by introducing them to multiplication tools or who just help the student practice using multiplication drills with the students. Therefore, although schools may not fully cover multiplication concepts until the third grade, you may introduce your children to multiplication facts a lot sooner so long as it does not interfere with their other school activities.

How many multiplication facts are there and do you need to know them all?

There is no finite amount of multiplication facts, in fact, since numbers are infinite, so are multiplication facts. Therefore trying to memorize all multiplication facts is neither feasible nor useful. The good news is that after learning the basic multiplication table, such as multiples of 0 - 12, the concept can be extended to solve advanced multiplication problems such as the following: 3 digit by 2 digit multiplication worksheets pdf.

For basic multiplication facts that range from multiples of 1 through 12, third graders on Sqooasha can answer as much as 12-15 multiplication facts within a minute on average. This time is a factor of the level of difficulty of the multiplication facts, the speed of their computer/internet, the student’s speed while interacting with the keyboard or touch screen device if using our mobile application, and other factors, which may vary from student to student. However, with consistent practice, some students are able to answer as much as 30 questions in a minute. If your student is a 4th or 5th grader, you may be wondering: "How many multiplication facts in a minute for 4th grade?" or "How many multiplication facts in a minute for 5th grade?" For these upper level grades, more complex multiplication are typically introduced to these students, such as 3 digit by 2 digit multiplications and fractional/decimal multiplication. However, for basic multiplication math facts, these students on Sqooasha have averaged 25 to 30 questions per minute, with some students answering as much as 45 to 50 questions in a minute. If your student’s speed is below the average, do not lose heart. Find a way to integrate multiplication facts practice into their daily routine. Even as little as 5 minutes of practice a day can help to develop the much needed automaticity that is required of students.
