Math Flash Cards: Multiply by 3 (3 is the 2nd Factor)

These math flash cards feature multiplying numbers 0 through 12 by 3. If you are learning multiplication tables starting at 0 and working your way up, this is where some people find that it gets a bit harder, but with practice, you can master this skill! I personally think it is a little easier to learn multiplying by 10s and by 5s than to multiply by 3s. Feel free to test a few out and see which set you would like to learn next.

Tips for Multiplying by 3
  • One way to multiply by three is to triple the other number or to add that number to itself three times. For example, when multiplying 6 by 3, imagine having three 6s or 6 + 6 + 6 = 18. Here's another example: when multiplying 10 by 3, imagine having three 10s or 10 + 10 + 10 = 30.
  • It may also help to skip count by threes when multiplying by three. Count by 3s the number of times that is equal to the number you are multiplying by three. For example, when multiplying 4 by 3, count by 3s four times...3 - 6 - 9 - 12 to get an answer of 12 or when multiplying 7 by 3, count by 3s seven times...3 - 6 - 9 - 12 - 15 - 18 - 21 to get an answer of 21.
