Mathematics - I don't add a lot, but what you see will not be run of the mill. So, if you are looking for worksheets to print out... look away! If you want games and activities that make pupils think... well take a look. As for me - I have almost 30 years of teaching experience and for about 4 years, was one of the Directors at the NCETM.

The Complete Pack of 4 minute tables tests - including multiplication and division

The Complete Pack of 4 minute tables tests - including multiplication and division

This set of 4 minutes tests include the normal 4 minute tables tests and also the extension tests (testing understanding of such as this: if 3 x 4 =12 then 3 x 0.4 = ?) that you see on my page, downloaded over 16,000 times and all 5 star reviews!. BUT they also test division facts as well. For example, if 3 x 4 =? then these also test ? x 4 = 12 And of course, these tests do not use the normal tables layout as that is what we believe adds complexity. The student just needs to fill the blank as usual. But as these depend on the tables being tested, there is not a single page for all tables, but a page of tests for each table from 2 to 12. So, download the pack and if the students have mastered the simple multiplication, these provide another extension. NOTE: if you have not used these before, try the 4 minute times tables test first - all 5 star recommendations!! Knowing tables facts is SO much more than just chanting them in unison! It's how they apply and understand them.

4 Minute multiplication tables/Multiplication tests

I believe that the format of times tables and multiplication tests adds to the difficulty and anguish associated with memorizing times tables. These 4 minute multiplication tests provide some differentiation, remove potential anxiety and are quick and easy.
