This is a poster showing the multiplication table or times tables - as taught in China.
Times tables are taught in a slightly different way.
The tables are up to 9 times 9 ( 9 x 9 ) but omit any repeated calculations.
For example, there is no need to learn the 2 times table past 2 x 2 = 4
This is because you will also learn any other number past 2 x 2 in the other tables.
in the 3 times table there is 2 x 3 = 6
and in the 4 times times table there is 2 x 4 = 8
So repetition is avoided to try and keep it simple.
Children are taught to recognize why 3 x 2 and 2 x 3 give the same result.
If a child can understand commutativity and have the memorised knowledge from their times tables that 3 x 2 = 6
they do not then need to have learned 2 x 3 = 6 as a separate, stand-alone piece of knowledge.
If you take the times tables and strip out the duplicates you get the essential elements of the times table
What this is for?

It is great for demonstrating commutativity.
