Multiplication is a basic math concept that every child should master before progressing to more challenging problem solving and higher-order thinking. It is ideal for a child to learn multiplication between second to third grade as in this way the child will be better prepared to handle third and fourth-grade topics such as fractions, division, and multi-digit multiplication. The better your child’s multiplication skills are, the more confident and successful he or she will be in maths. However, before learning multiplication, you should ensure that your child is already proficient in addition and subtraction. This is because each mathematical skill and set should be taught in a certain order such that each subsequent skill builds on the previous one. In this case, multiplication builds on addition and subtraction skills as you can also deduce the multiple of a number through adding or subtracting sets of that number. Here are some of the ways you can help your child learn multiplication facts and boost their math skills.
