Take your time. You don’t need to sit down and learn all of the multiplication facts at one time. In fact, this would be the worst way to learn. Choose a table and focus solely on that one. Take as much time as you need to master each one before moving onto the next one. Spend about 15-20 minutes each day studying flashcards or playing math games to master each multiplication fact. There are many multiplication math games with different themes that can be found online. For instance, if you really like dinosaurs, find one that uses dinosaurs to make learning more fun.
Use flashcards. Make multiplication cards for each number set. Although this may seem tedious, the process of making the cards will actually help you to learn them. Once you’ve made them, spend some time each day studying until you know them all. Focus on one number set at a time. When you go through the cards, put the ones you get wrong back into the pile so you see them multiple times.
In the simplest cases, the two fractions will already have a common denominator. In this case, add the numerators and then reduce the resulting fraction.
In KS2 children are taught that decimals are another way of writing fractions. The hundred number square is a really good way of showing children the equivalence between fractions and decimals.
