For this post we are going to talk about the 2’s Times Tables. The twos are perhaps the easiest times tables to learn.

Multiplying by two is the same as doubling the number (that is, adding the number to itself)! Pretty easy, right? First, let’s practice counting by twos:

2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24

That wasn’t so hard, right?

Now, let’s think about doubling numbers (adding them to themselves):

2 x 1 = 1 + 1 = 2

2 x 2 = 2 + 2 = 4

2 x 3 = 3 + 3 = 6

2 x 4 = 4 + 4 = 8

2 x 5 = 5 + 5 = 10

2 x 6 = 6 + 6 = 12

2 x 7 = 7 + 7 = 14

2 x 8 = 8 + 8 = 16

2 x 9 = 9 + 9 = 18

2 x 10 = 10 + 10 = 20

2 x 11 = 11 + 11 = 22

2 x 12 = 12 + 12 = 24

That’s pretty straightforward, right? So when you get a “twos” multiplication problem, it’s as easy as adding the number to itself! If you have problems with addition, not to worry! I’ll be posting some tips soon to help you with addition.
