# What is 1 1 1

## Practice multiplication tables

### Learn 1x1

In order to finally master the painting sequences inside out, some tricks and tricks are also helpful. Especially when you consider that you need to be able to use this basic knowledge in the long term. Every child learns in their own way. Against this background, we try to make the exercises as varied as possible and to differentiate between the multiplication tables and the multiplication tables.

At the beginning it is easiest to start with the smaller, natural number combinations. So 1 to 5, then 1 to 10, 1 to 15 and finally 1 to 20. For example, first look at the row of 1 in ascending order. If you can do this well, try to solve the tasks yourself. In the next step you can jumble up the tasks and try to solve them in turn. As soon as you have memorized the first painting sequence, you can do the same with the row of 2 and so on and so forth.

Note that every elementary school child learns at their own pace. One succeeds faster than the other, that's completely normal. It is important that you stay on the ball and do your exercises and repetitions consistently.

Many children can solve multiplication tables better if the smaller number is in front. For example, 4 x 9 is easier to calculate than 9 x 4. So you can solve the problem more easily by turning the numbers around!

It also helps when you share more difficult painting tasks. So instead of one task, calculate two tasks and then add them together. For example, many students find the task 6 x 7 difficult. If you first calculate 5 x 7 and then add the result of 1 x 7, the task is much easier to solve. Of course, this also works the other way around, for example subtract 1 x 7. To calculate 4 x 7, you can first take 5 x 7 and subtract the result of 1 x 7 from this.

### The 5 step plan

Follow the 5 step plan to learn step by step one painting sequence after the other and master them in your sleep! This innovative learning method was developed to make it easier for students to learn and memorize the multiplication tables. The 5 step plan has been tested by several schools and is recommended by teachers. It is important to have stamina in order to acquire the knowledge and then to anchor it in long-term memory through consistent repetition.

Start with the smaller multiplication problems, i.e. the 1-row, the 2-row and the 3-row. As soon as you feel safe with it, you can steadily increase your knowledge. To do this, keep adding another multiplication table one after the other.

The 5 steps are:

• Step 1b: painting tasks in a row. Fill in all the results and check your answers.
• Step 2: Put the correct results behind the painting tasks
