Students will memorize the 3 times table and be able to quickly answer its products.

Discuss with the students which answers are in the 3 times table and which are not. Drag the answers to the correct column.

Explain that you are going to start the timer and remove the cover to show the first problem. Then have the students quickly give the correct answer and drag the card to the side to show the next problem. Try to solve all the problems within the time given.

Check whether the students have memorized the 3 times table with the following question:
