How to Play the Times Tables Memory Matching Game?
Choose a set of multiplication table cards to revise, you can use one set of tables or multiple sets but it is best to start with those multiplication tables that students are most familiar with. Shuffle the cards well and spread them face down across the table.
Players take turns to turn over two cards, searching for the matching pair – an equation card (1×2=) and a product card (2). If the cards selected are a pair, the player keeps the card pair and takes another turn. If they are not the same, the cards are turned back over in the same location and play moves to the next player.
Once all cards have been matched, the player with the most matching pairs wins the game.
