Free Printable Math Flash Cards - Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication & Division

I've created sets of free printable math flash cards that you can download below and print out. These cards are free for personal or classroom use.

Using flash cards makes it much easier to memorize basic math facts including multiplication and division.

Flash cards allow you to quickly review a large number of facts to test your knowledge.

I made these printable math flash cards PDF files. You have my permission to print, copy, and distribute the flash cards to anyone.

You can email the PDF files to anyone, or put them on your blog, website, etc. without restriction.

To view and print a PDF file, you need the free Adobe PDF Reader (downloadable from Adobe.com) or other PDF reader software installed on your computer. Many computers already have this.

Print Options for Free Printable Math Flash Cards

Printable Math Flash Cards
Example: Vertical flash card set

Below are links for downloading the free printable math flash cards. Click a link to view the PDF file and print the cards. Instructions for assembling the cards appear below the list.

Each flash card set is available in vertical or horizontal format. The vertical flash cards are more traditional, but the horizontal cards require less paper to print.

The vertical flash card sets are fold-and-glue only. See below for instructions on how to fold and glue printable flash cards.

If you don't want to fold and glue, print the horizontal flash card sets instead.

Example: Horizontal flash card set

In addition to fold-and-glue, the horizontal sets are available in "no answers" format (one-sided only) as well as duplex (prints on both sides). No folding or gluing needed for either of these.

Duplex printing allows you to print on both sides of the paper, with or without answers. However, two-sided printing requires a duplex-enabled printer or a special printing technique (see below for how to do the technique).

IMPORTANT: Be sure to check your printer's orientation before printing. Vertical flash cards need Landscape orientation. Horizontal cards need Portrait orientation.

Printers vary, so it's a good idea to print a "test page" before printing a full flash card set. Also consider printing on thicker card stock paper so your flash cards last longer.

Vertical multiplication fold-and-glue flash cards:

Multiplication flash card example
Vertical multiplication
  • Vertical Multiplication 0-12 (Full). pdf This set is 43 pages in length. It has all 12 math facts for each number 1 through 12. For example, there is a 4x2 card and a 2x4 card.

    These cards are listed in first-factor order. This means you can enter page ranges to print subsets. For example, if you only want the "times 9" cards, enter "30-33" in the Pages section of the print dialog.

    This Full version is best if you want a complete set 1-12 for every number. To save paper and ink, use the Condensed version below.

  • Vertical Multiplication 0-12 (Condensed). pdf This set is 23 pages in length. It has one expression per pair of multiplication facts. For example, there is a 4x2 card but not a 2x4 card. Print this version to save paper, ink, and cut/paste time.

  • Commutative Multiplication flash card example
    Vertical commutative
  • Commutative Multiplication 0-12. pdf
    This special set of vertical printable math flash cards has commutative expressions for each multiplication fact. For example, 4x7 and 7x4 are on the same card. This is a complete set of all multiplication facts 0-12 and is 43 pages in length.

    These "commutative property" flash cards may be especially helpful for children who have trouble understanding that the order of the factors does not change the product. Many thanks to Kyla, 3rd grade teacher at Wiggins Elementary in Wiggins, Colorado, who suggested I make this card set.

How to Print & Assemble the Cards

Glue stick
A glue stick is an easy way to attach
the front and back of the cards.

To print the flash card pages, select File → Print in the flash card document. This opens a "Print" window where you can set print options such as number of copies.

If you wish, you can save the printable math flash cards PDF file to your computer by selecting File → Save a Copy.

Each page of the PDF has several flash cards with their front/back sides connected. To create the cards, cut each front/back unit as one rectangle, then fold along the middle. Attach the backs together using either tape or glue.

I prefer a glue stick as it is fast and not messy. But clear tape or regular liquid glue works too.

Duplex Printing. Some of the printable math flash cards sets are configured for duplex printing. Look for "Duplex Print" on the first card in the set.

These "duplex" printable math flash cards are set up for printing on both sides of the paper. No folding or gluing is needed when you print duplex.

How to Print Duplex If You Don't Have a Duplex Printer

If you don't have a duplex printer, you can accomplish the same result by printing the duplex pages one at a time on your regular printer and flipping them over.

That is, print the first page then re-insert the paper printed side down (upside down) into the printer; then print the second page on the back of the first page.

Flipping the pages one-by-one like this during printing is a slow process but saves lots of paper and allows you to skip the folding and gluing step.

As mentioned above, your free printable math flash cards will last a lot longer if you print them out on thick, substantial card stock paper rather than standard printer paper ("typing paper") which, of course, is fairly thin.

Note: If you need a custom set of free printable math flash cards other than those above, send me a message through the "Contact Me" link at left. I may be able to make it for you, at no charge of course.

Why Kids Need to Master Basic Math Facts

I've received lots of positive feedback about these free printable math flash cards. One of the nicest sets of comments - and most insightful - was from Margaret S. Lee, an associate professor from Florida:

I teach developmental math at Florida Gateway College in Lake City, FL. In addition, I work with math students at 4 different area high schools.

I see alot of kids who are struggling with 6-12 grade math simply because they never learned their math facts back in the elementary grades.

Your math facts flash cards are absolutely the best available on the Internet, free or otherwise. I've looked at probably 200 different sites. Yours is the only one that provides both vertical and horizontal formats (so important for developing algebra awareness) and is among the few sites where the cards actually print correctly.

Note the vital point she makes: Early mastery of basic math facts is essential for later progress in math. It is well worth the effort to print these out and use them - adult learners for themselves, and parents for their children.

If you want to make your own flash card sets for any topic, consider using the free flash card maker generously provided by kitzkitz.com. That's the tool I used to generate the horizontal printable math flash cards above. (I created the vertical cards in a Word document manually.)

It is my pleasure to provide these math facts cards to you as a free resource.

Free Math Games & Resources

Here are some additional free resources that are useful for practicing math facts:

Brain Racer

Printable math flash cards are an effective tool for memorizing the basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division math facts. Have your child (or yourself, if you are the student) review the deck of cards every day for 5 or 10 minutes. Spaced repetition and review has been shown to greatly increase retention and recall.
