### The 10 times tables

Watch this KS1 Maths video from Supermovers and listen to Webster the Spider sing the 10 times tables.

### Counting in tens

Here is a counting pattern:

10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, …

This pattern goes up in tens.

From each number, we add 10 to get the next number.

Can you count on in tens to get to 120?

### Groups of 10

This array has 10 apples in each row.

There are 3 rows, making 3 lots of 10.

10 + 10 + 10

Or 3 lots of 10 is the same as 3 x 10 and 3 x 10 = 30

1 lot of 10 = 102 lots of 10 = 203 lots of 10 = 304 lots of 10 = 40
1 x 10 = 102 x 10 = 203 x 10 = 304 x 10 = 40

This set of number facts are from the 10 times table.

### Example 1

This number track shows the 10 times table. Some numbers are missing.

• Can you work out which numbers are missing?

• How did you work out the missing numbers?

### Example 2

A box of pencils contains 10 pencils.

How many boxes of pencils will make 70 pencils?

10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 70

Or you could do this through multiplication:

7 lots of 10 = 70

so 7 x 10 = 70

### Top tip

Remember that every number in the 10 times table always ends in 0.

# Practise

## Activity 1

Practise counting up and down in tens from 0 to 120.

0102030405060708090100110120
1201101009080706050403020100

Now, have a look at these four different representations showing groups of 10s.

Think about how you would show each one as:

1. an array

3. a multiplication
