Times Too is a simple web-based application that supports existing classroom practice and places a real emphasis on times tables. With great sports themed graphics and a simple, engaging style, it really helps children enjoy learning multiplication. As it’s web-based, children can also log on at home and practise at the level set for them by their teacher.
"There’s nothing drier than rote learning of times tables, so when Peter approached me to design Times Too, I knew we had to make it as entertaining as we could. In fact, one parent told me that her 7-year-old daughter was having so much fun playing at home, she didn’t realise that she was learning at all!" commented Shipman.
The website provides both practice and test-based activities using the language, images and models that children are already familiar with in school. It asks standard, commutative and division questions to make sure that children develop a thorough understanding of these fundamental building blocks of maths.
"The children using Times Too have so far responded really well to the site and are making great progress with their tables. They absolutely love receiving the certificates that the site creates," said Dom Magner, a head teacher using Times Too.
He added: "From a teacher’s perspective, Times Too is providing continuity in the teaching of times tables throughout the school. Being able to analyse the data collected across year groups is useful for planning, and the fact that there’s no paperwork to deal with also makes it a pleasure to use."
"We want to encourage and promote the learning of times tables, which is why we priced Times Too so competitively" Cresswell said. "We hope to see a real boost in the number of children who know their times tables well, and who then go on to develop broader skills in all areas of maths."
