The multiplication of one-digit numbers is a fun thing to learn because it’s all about groups of things. For example, if you have 2 groups of 4 apples, you can multiply 2 and 4 to get 8 apples! That’s what multiplication does—it’s a quick way to add up lots of the same number.

To get started, you might want to have a multiplication table handy. A multiplication table is just a grid that shows you the product, or answer, when you multiply any two numbers together. You’ve probably seen one in your math book, and it might look something like this:

```
1 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
2 | 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18
3 | 3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27
4 | 4 8 12 16 20 24 28 32 36
5 | 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45
6 | 6 12 18 24 30 36 42 48 54
7 | 7 14 21 28 35 42 49 56 63
8 | 8 16 24 32 40 48 56 64 72
9 | 9 18 27 36 45 54 63 72 81
```

The first row and the first column show the numbers being multiplied together, and the cell where they meet gives the product. So, for example, if you’re multiplying 3 by 7, you find where the 3 row and the 7 columns meet and see that 3 times 7 equals 21.

Now, back to your worksheet. When it asks you to find the product of two numbers, it’s asking you to multiply those numbers together. Here’s an example:

If the question is, “What is 5 x 3?”, you would find where the row for 5 and the column for 3 meet in your multiplication table. The answer is 15! So, 5 times 3 equals 15.

I hope this helps! Don’t forget that practice makes perfect. The more you practice, the better you’ll get at multiplying one-digit numbers.
