Times TablesIt is important to learn the times tables from 2 to 12. You should learn then as you'd learn a song or a dance. In fact you need to know your times tables forwards, backwards and all mixed up. Spend time learning them well and you'll reap the benefits in future. Here are some printable forms on which you can record your progress: Personal Best Reverse Bar Chart  Tips For Remembering Multiplication Facts. Keep practising and one day you will be able to answer multiplication questions as fast as this: The state of pupils' numeracy is always in the news and in particular politicians have pledged that every child in England will know their 12 times table before they leave primary school as part of a "war on innumeracy". They argue that there is still a case for learning your twelve times table, even though there are no longer 12 pence in a shilling, but the reason is to do with discovering patterns and building a confidence in handling numbers.

"Another great idea for learning timestables is to make posters, each poster showing one of the more difficult tables facts. Transum,
"I love all of the times table resources you have created and the children in my class have really enjoyed using them. If you could create a high score leaderboard for the different games that was for each school, I think that would hugely drive up traffic to your site. I want to really promote your resources to my whole school and to parents at home and I think that if they could compete against other children they know, that would really inspire competition between them." Matt Curtis, Edgewood Primary School
"That's a wonderful idea Matt, thanks for the suggestion. The easiest way to accomplish this is for you to ask your pupils to include the name of your school after their name when recording their score on the chart. For example if you have a pupil called John he could enter his name as John@Edgewood. You could then display a highscore on your whiteboard by entering Edgewood into the form on the newly created Customised HighScore page. Please shout out if you have any problems, questions or any other ideas. Thanks." Transum,

"I have been teaching for Maths for over 30 years and thought I knew my multiplication facts pretty well. I can quickly respond when any of the multiplication facts up to twelve times twelve and can easily spot common factors when factorising algebraic expressions. My grey cells were challenged however when trying to quickly sort the more tricky multiplication facts into order in the fastest possible time. You can try too by doing level 7 of the Snappy Sorting challenge. Here’s the link: Transum.org/Maths/Activity/Sort/?Level=7. Good Luck." Clive, Southampton
