Printable multiplication table can be a learning media for students to hone their skills in mathematics. In terms of, multiplication tables are mathematical tables that are used to define multiplication operations in algebraic systems.
Multiplication tables are very important to be taught as part of basic arithmetic throughout the world. Besides this table also makes it easy to memorize the results of the multiplication of numbers consisting of numbers 1 to 9.
For example, a multiplication table of 10×10 will provide a multiplication table of numbers 1 to 10 arranged vertically and horizontally. How to do it is quite easy, just multiply the numbers in the vertical table with the numbers located in the horizontal table. For example, the number 1 on the vertical table multiplied by the number 1 on the horizontal table. Then the number 2 times 1, 3 times 1 and so on until the number 10 times 10. Then the answer will appear in the next table.
As information, the multiplication table is often associated with the ancient Greek mathematician namely Pythagoras, or currently often called Pythagorean tables. The oldest multiplication table is known to have been used by the Babylonians about 4000 years ago with a base of 60. While the oldest multiplication table with base 10 is a Chinese decimal multiplication table made in bamboo strips and originated about 305 years BC.
Learning mathematics through multiplication tables has many benefits. In addition to sharpening brain intelligence, learning mathematics is also very good for health. That is maximizing while balancing the work of the brain. Another benefit of learning mathematics is avoiding senility. This means that mathematics is not always synonymous with school days, but also important for the elderly.
