Building Up the 3 Times Tables

On a page make 3 rings. Put 1 dot in each set. How many altogether?

Put 2 dots in each set. How many altogether?

Put 3 dots in each set. How many altogether?

Continue this, until you have 12 dots in each set. Remember to be organised!

Can you begin to record your findings? Continue up to 3x12=

3 sets of 1 makes ____      or     3x1=

3 sets of 2 makes ____      or     3x2=

3 sets of 3 makes ____      or     3x3=

Counting in 3s

Use the 100 array (or even make your own 100 grid).

Colour the numbers showing Counting in 3s.

Practise counting forwards and backwards. Try counting with a partner or group using our Count Around Game from class.

You can use Splat Squares to count in 3s on a 100 array in Teaching Tables on Primary Games (Interactive Resources). You can also use the Table Mountain game on this website.

If you can count in 3s, you have all of your answers for the 3 times tables!
