‘Times Tables’ are essential tool for mathematical fluency; they ‘free up’ the brain to focus upon the problem rather than working out calculations. Teaching them separately, as ‘facts’ to be remembered, disconnects the learner’s understanding of what they are and how they are related to essential concepts such as multiples, factors, fractions, scaling and much more.

Teachers and Teaching Assistants
Thank you so much Karen. I enjoyed the training this morning tremendously and tried out the ideas straight after lunch with my class leading to 20 mins of enthusiastic discussion! Brilliant!
The children said they really enjoyed it and wanted to do more so I am definitely going to be changing my teaching!’
Thank you for showing us HOW to change. So many courses just tell us what isn't working but not how to go about addressing this. Your approaches make so much sense! Thank you.
Just to say thank you again for 3 really brilliant talks at SGIS. We're a small school near Basel and we’d be interested in anything you’re doing nearby (Zurich way) so please let us know!
