Multiplication Quiz
10-25-2009, 11:56 AM

I am trying to find a site that has quizzes for multiplication. I just want a quiz that will only have 0-12 for each number. For example using 2, 0x2, 1x2, 2x2, 2x3, 2x4, 2x5, 2x6 and so forth. Any ideas?

I think you will find what you are looking for at http://www.math-drills.com/multiplication.shtml
This site has a large variety of tests available, as well as tons of other resources. However, they definitely have the multiplying with n tests with a range of (1-12). So, if you are working on the threes, the worksheet gives you 100 problems of 3x1, 3x2, 3x3, etc. repeated randomly to arrive at 100 problems.

Just a thought. What I have done to have my students work on multiplying by a specific factor is to give them a "zip strip". Basically it's a quick check that could be used for any factor. It looks like this:

x __ (imagine the __ being a box) They fill in the factor we're working with in the box at the top of the page. Then down the page they see

__ x 3 =
__ x 7 =
__ x 2 =
__ x 8 = and so on. They only fill in the given factor that one time at the top of the page. Then any time they see that box on the page they know to mult. by that factor. We are only working on mastering through 9's, so I have them do this in 30 seconds. They are zip strips because I expect them to just zip right through them. They are so short that I think I can fit 8 to a page.
I really like them, because I don't have to have lots of different fact quizzes available. We can use the same zip strip for every factor. Just a thought...

roo's "Zip Strip" idea...

roo,
Your suggestion reminded me of a page I've used for several years to give multiplication quiz tests for different factors. I guess you could say your idea is like mine, but I have a choice of 4 columns. I have them keep the page in a sheet protector and they use a dry-erase pen for their quiz. Just before they begin, I can specify "Use column 3, today." or "Use column 1, today" and off they go.

(Before the days of dry-erase markers, I had them cut off the used strip, so it saved me from having to run off a new quiz every time.)

It has worked very well for me for more than 5 years, now.

I'm leaving it as an attachment in case anyone would like to try it out.

Thank you for the mult. quiz strip idea. That might also work well as a homework paper. Thanks for sharing!

How much time do you give them? 30 seconds?
I also like this because students could be on totally different factors! Very cool! Do you correct these? Or have students self correct them?

Zip Strip for multiplicaton quiz

I have students correct their own papers using a different colored marker/dry erase pen OR they can trade with someone. They must use the answer sheet to look up each answer.

Quote:

I give them two minutes to complete 25 problems.
After they've gone through to the 9's they take a 5 minute test of 100 problems. (Supposedly, they should be able to pass this test, but they often realize they didn't have the automaticity needed to complete the 5 minute test, and so they need to study [re-study?]whatever slowed them down.)

Here are the zip strips that I use. We do these daily for awhile, and students who complete a factor in 30 seconds earn a punch on their multiplication license. They're very excited about earning their license by completing all of the factors.

Thanks for posting your zip strips. Yours would definitely go much faster! I think I'm going to try them out with my class to see how it goes.

Now that you've mentioned yours, I need to come up with a name for the ones I use. I just call them '2 minute quiz'.

missing factor?
10-26-2009, 04:13 AM
 #11

Are any of you aware of a website that might generate worksheets that provide missing factor problems?
For example ____ x 3 = 12 or 5 x ____ = 40

I'd like for my students to practice with this type of problem to get them ready for division.

I don't know of a site that generates missing factor problems, but I use www.softschools.com to generate my quizzes for multiplication. You can specify the number ranges as well as how many rows/columns of problems on a page.

I agree. The mult. license thing sounds cool!. Also, I like your zip strips too! So they do one row or 10 problems in 30 seconds or the whole thing in 30 seconds?

Risa, here is your form combined with Roo's zip strips title and a bit of added clip art to drive home your point. You are both credited in the shaded title column.

They do just one little strip (10 facts) in 30 seconds. We all start with x 1 so they get the hang of it, but then they can choose whatever factor they want to work on.

The mutiplication license is something I made through VistaPrint this year. I just customized the free business cards. Next year, I'll make them a little more elaborate and do them on postcards. When they "pass" a factor, we use a special holepunch (I have hearts, since we LOVE math) and they're trying to earn all of their punches. When they do, they get to use a window marker to sign the window right next to our classroom door. For whatever reason, they are dying to do this! I'm attaching a picture of the mult. license (front & back) we're using this year. It's not very fancy, but it's working!

I use the multiplication license and my students love it. I am attaching a copy of mine in case any one wants to use them. For some reason it is not allowing me to attach them. If anyone wants a copy, they are in word and easy to change to input your students information.

You never cease to amaze me, NeeCee! Of course you would find a way to add some 'pizazz' to these ideas! Great job!

After seeing Roo's Multiplication License, I was reminded of the various punch cards you created a few months ago. I'll bet they could be easily converted to Multiplication Punch Cards.

There are also quite a few more that others have been posted in MS Word. Those might be more easily adapted to the right number of punches. Do a search for "punch cards."

Do you have the kids fill in the number down the row before you start the 30 seconds. For example, if they are doing 3's- do they fill in all the 3's before the timer starts or after? I know they fill in the answer in the 30 seconds but I wasn't sure of the factor. Thanks!

No. They just fill in the factor in the one box at the top. I've taught them that the box then represents that factor in each fact. So they write in the one factor and turn their paper face down. When I say go, they flip it over and start writing the answers only.

Hi NeeCee.. just wondering if you happen to have punch cards tailored to learning the multiplication facts?

Hi! Welcome to ProTeacher!
I was about to log off when I stopped to quickly browse through this thread. Glad I did because NeeCee just posted a couple "hot off the thinking cap" multiplication cards!

(Maybe you're the one who inspired her! If so, thanks for the suggestion!)

I'm late to this party, but I love, love, love this strip. We have copying restrictions at our school, and this allows me to quickly assess skills without using up a bunch of paper, or overwhelming kids with too many facts at once!

Thanks so much for sharing!

Hi Jeanine! I found this message on a search for a math facts license template. I was wondering if you still have a copy of yours you could send to me.

Thanks!
