2 digit by 1 digit Multiplication Worksheets

About These 15 Worksheets

These sheets are filled with problems where you have to multiply a 2-digit number (like 12, 34, or 95) with a 1-digit number (like 3, 7, or 9). Each worksheet is like a mini-math adventure, where you are the hero who has to solve all the problems. The problems on the worksheet usually start off easy, then get a bit more challenging as you move along. This way, as you get better at solving the problems, they get a bit more difficult, so you’re always learning and growing.

The beauty of these worksheets is that they are designed to help improve your math skills in multiple ways. Let’s go through them one by one.

Practice and Repetition – The more you practice something, the better you become at it. It’s like playing your favorite sport. At first, you might find it challenging, but as you keep playing, you get better and better. Similarly, these worksheets provide you with ample practice and repetition, allowing you to familiarize yourself with multiplication and improving your speed and accuracy.

Conceptual Understanding – Multiplication is not just about getting the correct answer, but it’s also about understanding what multiplication actually means. When you multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number, you are essentially adding the 2-digit number to itself as many times as the 1-digit number. Worksheets help to cement this understanding.

Confidence Building – With each problem you solve correctly on the worksheet, your confidence grows. You start to believe in your ability to conquer math problems, which is very important in nurturing a positive attitude towards learning.

Preparation for Advanced Math – Multiplication is a building block for more advanced math topics like division, fractions, and algebra. By mastering 2-digit by 1-digit multiplication through worksheets, you’re paving the way for learning these advanced topics later on.

Application in Real Life – These worksheets also help you to understand and apply multiplication in real-life scenarios. For example, if you have 4 packs of candy and each pack has 12 candies, how many candies do you have in total? To find out, you’ll need to multiply 4 (the 1-digit number) by 12 (the 2-digit number).

Problem-Solving Skills – When you work through these worksheets, you’re also enhancing your problem-solving skills. Each multiplication problem is like a small puzzle waiting to be solved. Over time, your brain gets better at finding solutions, which is a valuable skill in many areas of life, not just in math.
