The Wheel of 12s
This worksheet features a circular design, often referred to as a multiplication wheel, which is centered around the 12 times table. The number 12 is placed at the center of the circle, and around it, numbers 1 through 12 are spaced evenly along the spokes that radiate from the center. Students are instructed to multiply the central number 12 by each of the surrounding numbers. The purpose of this design is to provide a visual and interactive way for students to practice their multiplication facts with the number 12.
The worksheet is designed to teach students the 12 times table in a visually engaging manner. It allows them to see the relationship between the number 12 and the other numbers in a circular format, which can be a helpful mnemonic device. This method encourages the recall of multiplication facts through repeated practice and visual association. By completing the wheel, students reinforce their understanding of multiplication and improve their ability to quickly recall the products of 12 multiplied by other numbers.
