Basic Multiplication Lesson 1: Number 1

Welcome to Basic Multiplication. In this unit, you will learn how to multiply numbers from one to twelve and also zero. FoxyMath wishes you success!

Here's an easy example:

1

×

=

MediumVioletRed Box  times     Black Box Box  equals     MediumVioletRed Box

We start with one box, multiply by one box, and now still have one box. Any number multiplied by one is the number because you have the number just one time. You'll see other examples of this in the next lessons.

Here's another example:

1

2
=

×

=

Violet Box  times     Black Box Box   Black Box Box  equals     Violet Box   Violet Box

We start with one box, multiply by two boxes, and now have two boxes.

We start with one box, multiply by three boxes, and now have three boxes.

In order to do basic multiplication, you must memorize some equations but fear not: FoxyMath will help you! When you are finished with this lesson, you will know the following equations:

1×1 = 1
1×2 = 2
1×3 = 3
1×4 = 4
1×5 = 5
1×6 = 6
1×7 = 7
1×8 = 8
1×9 = 9
1×10 = 10
1×11 = 11
1×12 = 12
