# Multiplication Times Table for 9

Why can’t my students remember the multiplication times tables for 9?!

I’m not kidding you when I say that this is a highly searched topic.

You aren’t alone!

Luckily, there are tricks AND ways to practice this times table so that your students become multiplication times tables for 9 WIZARDS!

## Tricks

### Count down!

This is the perfect introduction to the 9s times tables!

Write down all the facts in a column (9 x 1 all the way to 9 x 12).

Write down the answers in a column as well.

Ask students – what pattern do you see?

Students will quickly see that tens place goes up by 1 as the ones place value goes down by 1.

Seeing this pattern is a neat way that some kids will be able to use and visualize the answers!

Y’all… I totally still use this trick.

As soon as your kids learn it, it’s totally foolproof and will instantly tell you any multiplication fact answer for the 9s.

Okay – put your hands in front of you with your palms open, fingers separated.

Now, let’s say we want to know what 9 x 8 is.

Everything to the left of the folded finger is a tens place value; everything to the right of the folded finger is a ones place value.

There are 7 fingers to the left, 2 to the right.

Therefore, 9×8=72.

SO COOl, RIGHT?!

This works all the way up to 9 x 10
