Multiplication Timed Tests

by Jill & Cathy on January 1, 2013  Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.

How long do you give your students for the 25 multiplication problems?

Hi Julia and thanks for your question. We have found that research supports 4 seconds per problem, so in our district we give students a minute and 40 seconds. (1 minute and 30 seconds in some classrooms.) We know that other districts opt for less time. Our sons are given 1 minute for 25 problems in the district we currently live in. Our suggestion would be to start with 4 seconds per problem to show mastery, but then push some students who may enjoy the challenge to complete the 25 problems in one minute.

would also like to print vertical problems in each of the number facts page. Thanks for the feed back on the time to give per problems!!!!! Love this site.

Will put this on our “to do” list. (Actually it was already there.) We are pretty busy with back-to-school items and updating organizational and management resources, but hope to get to it soon!

I like the format of your multiplication tests. Do you have a resource that goes up to 12s?

Hi Kim! Not currently, but we will put it on our list of things to do!
