Our expert tutors assist students to practise recalling the 12 times tables and their related division facts.
Is Your Year 4 Child Able To Automatically Recall The 12 X Tables?
The ability to memorise and automatically recall the 12 X tables is a skill that can be learned by most students with practise, and doing so gives them a distinct advantage in Mathematics.
The ability to recall the 12 X tables automatically helps students succeed in Mathematics because it frees up their cognitive space, enabling them to focus on the more complex mathematical concepts involved in number, algebra and problem solving.
Students who know their tables don’t need to slow down or ‘fill up’ their working memory by stopping to solve every ‘basic’ multiplication or division equation that they encounter during a typical mathematics lesson. This causes many students to make unnecessary errors.
During our workshops we focus on learning a single X table at a time. For example, one week we will focus on learning the 6 X tables, and another week we will focus on learning the 8 X tables, and so on.
Our ‘Times Table tune Up’ workshops follow the same format. First we do some skip counting to warm up, then we practise solving times table equations and learning the ‘fact family’ for each 12 X table equation. Students also complete a task sheet that involves applying the times table knowledge that was practised during the workshop, to a variety of simple problems.
We focus on helping students to have fun, feel successful and enjoy learning the 12 X tables during our workshops.
If your child is in Year 3 or above, and doesn’t know their 12 times tables, they could benefit from participating in our ‘Times Tables Tune Up’ workshops.
Our 30-minute ‘Times Table Tune Up’ workshops are live, taken by an expert tutor and they are scheduled every Saturday afternoon throughout the school term. They also cost less than $10 per workshop!
Each 7 page booklet in this series of 12, has been specifically designed to develop the ability and confidence of students who are learning their 12 times tables. By completing our Times tables booklets, students will improve their ability to complete number sequences involving multiples of the 12 Times tables, practise recalling multiplication facts and related division facts, monitor their own progress and set their own goals.
