I sometimes take shortcuts to help me with times tables. For example, to find 6x a number I first do 5x followed by adding one lot on. So to find 6 x 7 I would do:
5 x 7 = 35
Add one more lot of 7 to 35 = 42
= 6 x 7 = 42
…BUT calculating 7 x 8 or 8 x 7 was always really tricky for me… Until I found this funny song a few years ago which made me and my class laugh and help us remember!
The channel has other videos too, what you think?
