The 8 times table is often one of the last tables to be learnt ‘off by heart’ but we have introduced new sets of worksheets to help children learn this a little earlier. Of course multiplying by 8 can be done by doubling, doubling and doubling again, but this is a far slower process than knowing the table. Beginning with saying the table out loud, practising answering questions and finally speed tests to see how well it has been learned.
