I was wondering at what age your DCs knew all their times tables, including the ability to divide.....just wondered what the expectations/aims are for that.......

When I was at school I am pretty sure we only started learning them in year 4/5 and I certainly didn't know them before year 6. My DC's school is pushing the tables early so I just wondered what is typical/average etc....

5 though figured out lots before but not recognised it as times table.

Dd1 is almost 8 and in yr 3(?) <bad parent>

She knows her 2's, 5's, 10's, and some of her 3's and 4's.

She has weekly timestables tests at school and has already done 2's and 5's. 10's is next week.

He knew all of them at age 6. He's very good at maths though.

DS was taught 2, 5 and 10 in yr 2 and the rest in yr 3. Not sure whether the kids learnt them as they are now doing them again in yr 4. They don't appear to do 11 and 12, unless that is a treat in store for us later on. They have weekly tests in yr 3 and yr 4.

Dd is y3 and 7 and knows all hers and can divide too. Once you know your tables, division is easy.

DD2 could do them all, devised too by about Christmas of year 5 .
Her dyslexic Y9 sister and me still don't know them and never will. ( I still have an A for maths o'level grin)

DC learnt all times tables by the end of yr1 and were tested weekly. I think it depends on the school, but I also thought this was way too early. However now that it's done, it does make whizing through other concepts like division easier and allowed the class to focus on developing individual weaknesses with pressure which might otherwise have been hindered.

That was meant to read 'without pressure'....
