Can you remember the fact families with this multiplication and division game?

Remembering Multiplication and Division Fact Families

With this resource, students will aim to recall matching fact families for multiplication and related division facts to 10 × 10.

To play, students lay out the number fact cards, face-down and take turns flipping over two cards at a time to see if they are part of a fact family.

Choose to focus on one set of multiplication facts, e.g. multiples of four, or play a mega round of all multiples (that might go over several lessons).

There is also a second version of the activity (indicated with a purple background). This version focuses solely on multiplication and division facts of twos, threes, fives and tens.

Through this activity, students will show recall multiplication and matching division facts.
