Quick and efficent way to learn times tables?

generally, i am good at maths, but i have never been able to remember times tables. Im 16, and am doing a level maths next year, and the first module is non calculator, so i really need to learn!

does anyone know any succesful methods to do this???

thanks

If you are talking about the simple multiplication table from 1..10, here are the tricks I use (for higher numbers, see at end):

a) Multiplying by 10 simply adds a zero.

b) learn the square numbers by heart:
1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81
One hint is that the last digits are a symmetric pattern
1 4 9 .6 <.5> .6 .9 .4 .1

c) The product of two numbers that are 2 apart is one less than the square of the middle number:
2 * 4 = 8 = 3^2-1
3 * 5 = 15 = 4^2-1
4 * 6 = 24 = 5^2-1
5 * 7 = 35 = 6^2-1
6 * 8 = 48 = 7^2-1
7 * 9 = 63 = 8^2-1

d) The product of two numbers that are 4 apart is 4 less than the square of the middle number:
2 * 6 = 12 = 4^2 - 4
3 * 7 = 21 = 5^2 - 4
4 * 8 = 32 = 6^2 - 4
5 * 9 = 45 = 7^2 - 4

e) Products with 5: Just halve the other number and add a zero if even; 5 if odd: E.g.
7*5: 7 halved is 3, add 5 -> 35
4*5: 4 halved is 2, add 0 -> 20

f) Multiples of 9:
Write down one less than other number, then rest to 9:
9*2 --> write down 1, then 9-1=8 --> 18
9*3 --> write down 2, then 9-2=7 --> 27
9*4 --> write down 3, then 9-3=6 --> 36
9*5 --> 4..5 --> 45
9*6 --> 5..4 --> 54
9*7 --> 6..3 --> 63
9*8 --> 7..2 --> 72
9*9 --> 8..1 --> 81

g) Products of numbers next to each other:
2*3 -> remember 6
3*4 -> remember 12
4*5 -> see e)
5*6 -> see e)
6*7 -> 42 - "the answer to everything from the Hitch Hiker's Guide ..."
7*8 -> 56 - remember 5 6 7 8
8*9 -> see f)

Also, these products come in "pairs", as I see it:

2*3 and 3*4 - one is double the other

4*5 and 5*6 - one is 20, the other 30

6*7 and 7*8 -
* their difference is 14 (2*7);
* so when you know 56=7*8 (5-6-7-8), you know 56-14=42.
* And 42=3*14, 56=4*14.

Only 8*9 = 72 is "lonely" (or you want to pair it with 9*10=90 - both have sum 9: 7+2 = 9+0).

h) 3 apart:
2*5 --> remember 10
3*6 --> double of 3*3
4*7 --> hard to learn - remember 28
5*8 --> see e)
6*9 --> see f)

i) 5 apart
2*7 = 14 - learn
3*8 = 24 - double of 3*4
4*9 = 36 --- 49 is a square, 36 also!

The hardest part, I find, is actually to quickly put the computation in one of the boxes above. Eg..... fast: What is 5*9?
--> you must decide:
Use "5 rule"? - write down half of other number: 4; and attach 5 because 9 is odd --> 45
Or
Use "9 rule": Write down one less of other number 4; and rest to 9 = 5 --> 45.
Or
"distance 4 rule": middle number is 7 --> 7*7=49; minus 4 is 45.

Really try to do this - put each computation in a "rule bucket". And so you can remember WHY a product is what it is ...

Good luck!

What about numbers above 10?

j) Again, it is very useful to learn all squares by heart. And again, the trailing digits follow the same pattern:

121 144 169 196 225 256 289 324 361: 1 4 9 6 5 6 9 4 1 !

Moreover,
169 and 196 are "somehow reversed".
225 follows from a general rule of squaring x5, where x is a single digit:
Write down x(x+1), then 25: E.g., 65^2 = (6*7, then 25) 4225.
256 is 2^8 - computer people know this; otherwise, learn by heart.
The last ones are all the multiple of 4 of the last digit, then the falling single-digit squares:

17^2 = [7*4] [9] = 289
18^2 = [8*4] [4] = 324
19^2 = [9*4] [1] = 361

Then, b), c), d), e) work there also (e.g.: 13*15 = 14^2-1=195).

k) Multiples of 11:
Squeeze in the sum of the two digits:

34*11 = [3] [3+4] [4] = 374
27*11 = [2] [2+7] [7] = 297

If the sum overflows, increment the leftmost digit:

39*11 = [3] [3+9] [9] = 429

l) * 15:
Times 10, then half of that:

18*15 = 180 + 90 = 270

m) 3 apart:
9*12 = 108 - learn by heart
11*14 --> rule of 11
12 * 15 --> rule of 15
13*16 = mhm - see below
14*17 = also see below
15*18 --> rule of 15
16*19 --> see below

n) Sometimes, (a-1)*(b+1) = ab - b + a - 1 works:

19*16 = (20-1)*(15+1)=300 - 15 + 20 - 1 = 304

13*16 = (14-1)*(15+1)=14*15 - 15 + 14 - 1 = 14^2 + 14 - 15 + 14 - 1 = 196 - 1 + 14 - 1 = 196 + 12 = 208 ... maybe not worth the effort ...

14*17 = (15-1)*(16+1) = 15*16-16+15-1=(rule of 15)160+80-1-1=240-2=238

That's about all I know ...
