So, at some point, tables (the physical thing) became politically incorrect, and liberals are calling for the offensive term "times table" to be removed from schools. What can we call them instead.

Specifically, it must still be an alliteration. "Times matrices" or "times grids" are a no go.

What can we call them instead of "times tables"?

    $\begingroup$ Um, why would the word 'table' become politically incorrect? How do you use the word 'table' in any sort of derogatory way, ever? $\endgroup$ – Isaac Woods Oct 31 '15 at 19:12

Imagine this in the most politically correct / rage inducing voice:

It is a multiplication matrix, thank you.

Despite the fact that it isn't a mathematical matrix, just a bunch of rows and columns with headings.
