    Never really learnt them properly. I used to struggle with mental maths tests in year six - this was probably why - and I didn't take the initiative to actually learn them at home because I had no idea what "revision" was. This explains why I still don't know the 12 times table.

    It's the less formal name of a multiplication table.

    Students around the world are often expected to memorize the operations in the table below in Primary School.

    People often say that TSRians are a bit smarter than the general populus so I'm curious to see whether there are many who learnt them prior to the age of 9 which is when they are meant to have been taught.

    I remember being competely bewildered by the fact that 0 times x=0 so I probably learned them later rather than sooner tbh lol

    Who remembers this stuff..I vaguely recall not particularly liking times tables or seeing the point because it was easy to just work the multiplications out

    Never. When I was a kid I had my own common-core type system for multiplying numbers.
