Looking for a times table resource

    Hi

    I have a weak year 7 group and for the end of the year I am going to try and build confidence and improve their number skills.

    I am searching for some times table resources. I want something I can issue as homeworks which has each times table on its own sheet, so that I can issues specific sheets according to students strengths. Ideally I would want a sheet with some hints/tips and tricks, the multiplication table itself, and some questions for students to try.

    I would then try to assess regularly, to monitor progress and make sure I am issuing the correct work to students.

    I feel something like this must exist, and I don't want to reinvent the wheel. I have looked at many resources but nothing seems to fit the bill. Does anyone have anything that fits with what I am after?

    Thanks

    Times table rockstars is a great resource. Don't know if it ticks all your boxes, but it is going down well in our place.

    There are many free apps available for smart phones. Get them to download one and practise everyday, they are self marking/correcting and can be used anywhere.



    Alternatively if you are after a paper based system these work and get parents involved http://www.timestables4u.com/



    If you use Promethean and have ActivExpression handsets available I put a flipchart here http://mathsshed.weebly.com/blog/times-tables. Each child will get all times tables up to 12 x 12 in their own random order. Their work will be marked and results provided for you to analyse.




     
  4. Thank you for sharing Maths_Shed, those look great resources.

    I'm rather with googoplex on this one, TTRS has really helped many students in my school. You have to sell it initially but lots do get addicted and enjoy seeing their scores improve.

    Thanks for the help
     
  6. Hi,

    I hope you have found some good resources for your children. We have built a timestables activity for the entire classroom - https://www.mathscraft.com - it's a game in which children compete with each other for the bigger of the two factors of a given number in the timestables.

    Do let me know if you found it useful.

    Kind regards,

    Prathap
