Thinking About Threes!

Use the lines to write the three times table going up to twelve.

Here’s your exploration. Add the digits of the totals. (For 1x3=3 you would write 3. For 2x3=6, you would write 6. For 3x3=9, you would write 9. For 4x3=12, you would write 1+2=3. For 5x3=15, you would write 1+ 5=6. You get the idea. Keep on going. See if you detect a pattern. Describe the pattern.
