If you've worked through the preceding lessons, you are ready to create your own times tables! Have no fear, there is time to review and rap and wrap and play and plate and quiz your way to success!
Sasha has noticed that the birds are starting to migrate south for the winter. She sees five flocks of birds flying in "V" formation throughout the day. She notices that each flock is made up of seven birds. How many birds did Sasha see flying south?

If you wrote 5 x 7 = 35, you are correct! Since you have already learned the five times tables, what times tables do you think you will focus on in this lesson? This lesson is all about the seven times tables.
You are getting closer and closer to having all of your multiplication facts memorized! So far, you have learned to multiply by two, three, four, five, six, ten, and eleven.
Let's review the times tables you have learned by creating a multiplication table.
In this lesson, you will learn multiples of seven. Many people agree that the seven times tables are the most challenging to learn. The good news is that you already have more than half of the multiplication facts memorized, so you know how to multiply seven by two, three, four, five, six, ten, and eleven. That means you only need to learn how to multiply seven by four other numbers to have this set mastered!
Look at this completed multiplication table (below). The column and row of the seven multiplication facts have been highlighted. Make a list of any patterns, repeated numbers, or other observations you notice. Share your list with a teacher or parent:

Were you able to find any patterns or repeated numbers? Unfortunately, like the three times tables, there really aren't any helpful tricks you can use to help you memorize this set. That means you may need to spend extra time practicing these math facts. You can begin this practice by listening to the 7 Times Table Song Rap: Multiples of Seven by NUMBEROCK song a few times, until you start to remember the multiples of seven:
When you are able to recite the multiples of seven to a teacher or parent, move on to the Got It? section to practice solving multiplication problems with seven.
We help prepare learners for a future that cannot yet be defined. They must be ready for change, willing to learn and able to think critically. Elephango is designed to create lifelong learners who are ready for that rapidly changing future.
