‘Learning multiplication facts is an important foundation for learning different aspects of mathematics such as division, algebra, long multiplication, and even fractions.
For pupils that don't have a solid grasp of the times tables, they may find these other areas to be hard to understand as well.’
DfE, February 2018
When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master their times tables! To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!
