Recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12

Be able to answer all multiplication questions at speed and its corresponding division fact.
12 x 4 = 48 so 48 ÷ 4 = 12 5 x 5 = 25 so 25 ÷ 5 = 5 6 x 8 = 48 so 48 ÷ 6 = 8 
What is the missing number?
? x 5 = 50 4 x ? = 44 6 x 6 = ? ? ÷ 2 = 7 18 ÷ ? = 3 
Recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations 
Factors are numbers you can multiply together to get another number
e.g. 2 and 3 are factors of 6. Factor pairs of 12 are 2, 6, 3, 4, 1 and 12. 
Name a factor pair of 18. (9, 2, 3, 6, 1, 18.)
Is 5 a factor of 33? Say which number is a factor of 40? 13, 5, 6, or 3.
