Writing is one of the best tools to memorize times table. Try to make a habit of writing multiplication table everyday. Solving ‘Multiplication Table Missing Numbers’ can also going to help you tremendously.

6. Identify Patterns

If you see the multiplication table, you will find that every times table has its own pattern. For example, In the table of 5, you can notice that only 5 and 0 is coming alternatively at ones place value:
5
10
15
20
25
30
35
40
45
50

In the table 8:
8
16
24
32
40
48
56
64
72
80

you can notice that the value of ones place is decreasing by 2 till 40 and again starts increasing by 2 till 80. Identifying pattern can help you to memorize these times tables faster.

7. Every multiplication has a pair

For example, if you forget 7×3, you might remember 3×7=21. This way, you only have to remember half the times table.
