## Age group when 2 times multiplication table are typically taught

Multiplication tables are taught to learners aged 6 to 8 years old or 2^{nd} or 3^{rd} grades (USA).

The multiplication table for 2 can be taught to learners the simplest way: by memorization. A 2 times table chart should be shown where the learners may see it frequently and read aloud to them until they remember it.

## 2 Times Multiplication Table in Words

The following is how we read the 2 times multiplication table:

How write 2 times table | How we read 2 times table |

2 × 1 = 2 | Two times one is equal to 2 |

2 × 2 = 4 | Two times two is equal to 4 |

2 × 3 = 6 | Two times three is equal to 6 |

2 × 4 = 8 | Two times four is equal to 8 |

2 × 5 =10 | Two times five is equal to 10 |

2 × 6 =12 | Two times six is equal to 12 |

2 × 7 =14 | Two times seven is equal to 14 |

2 × 8 =16 | Two times eight is equal to 16 |

2 × 9 =18 | Two times nine is equal to 18 |

2 × 10 = 20 | Two times 10 is equal to 20 |

2 × 11 = 22 | Two times 11 is equal to 22 |

2 × 12 = 24 | Two times 12 is equal to 24 |

## Tips to Master 2 Times Multiplication Table

Basic tables like the table of two are simple to memorize and recite. Let us find out how to learn the table of two. The following are some points to remember:

( a ) ** The two-times multiplication table only uses even numbers in its pattern**: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, etc. It is simple to learn the 2 times table since it is skip counting in increments of 2.

( b) *When you multiply by 2, you keep adding the number 2.*

Let us say, for example, when we say 2 times 3 (2 × 3); the number 2 is added three times.

Hence, for more examples in the 2 times table we have,

2 × 2 = 2 + 2 = **4**

2 × 3 = 2 + 2 + 2 = **6**

2 × 4 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = **8**

2 × 5 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = **10**

2 × 6 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = **12**

2 × 7 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 +2 = **14**

2 × 8 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 +2 + 2 = **16**

2 × 9 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 +2 + 2 + 2 = **18**

2 × 10 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 +2 + 2 + 2 + 2= **20**

2 × 11 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 +2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = **22**

2 × 12 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 +2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = **24**

( c ) ** The number is doubled by using the 2 times multiplication table. **The table below shows the concept of adding the number twice.

2 Times Table | Doubling the number | Result |

1 × 2 | 1 + 1 | 2 |

2 × 2 | 2 + 2 | 4 |

3 × 2 | 3 + 3 | 6 |

4 × 2 | 4 + 4 | 8 |

5 × 2 | 5 + 5 | 10 |

6 × 2 | 6 + 6 | 12 |

7 × 2 | 7 + 7 | 14 |

8 × 2 | 8 + 8 | 16 |

9 × 2 | 9 + 9 | 18 |

10 × 2 | 10 + 10 | 20 |

11 × 2 | 11 + 11 | 22 |

12 × 2 | 12 + 12 | 24 |

( d ) *Utilizing the 1 times multiplication table is another way of learning the 2 times table.*

This strategy is done by adding all the natural numbers from 1 to 10 to the 1 times multiplication table.

1 Times Multiplication Table | Adding the Natural Numbers 1 to 10 | Result |

1 × 1 = 1 | + 1 | 2 |

1 × 2 = 2 | + 2 | 4 |

1 × 3 = 3 | + 3 | 6 |

1 × 4 = 4 | + 4 | 8 |

1 × 5 = 5 | + 5 | 10 |

1 × 6 = 6 | + 6 | 12 |

1 × 7 = 7 | + 7 | 14 |

1 × 8 = 8 | + 8 | 16 |

1 × 9 = 9 | + 9 | 18 |

1 × 10 =10 | + 10 | 20 |

1 × 11 = 11 | + 11 | 22 |

1 × 12 = 12 | + 12 | 24 |

## What are the prerequisites for mastering the 2 times multiplication table?

( a ) The skill to add up to 20 must be mastered by learners and is commonly taught to 1^{st}-grade learners.

( b ) The 1 times multiplication table must be taught to the learners so that they are knowledgeable that the result of multiplying a number by 1 is the same as the number being multiplied. It simply means that you only have one group of that number.

( c ) Adding groups or repeated addition are essential since these concepts establish a solid foundation for learning multiplication.
