Have seen on here a couple of excellent resources mentioned for learning times tables.

Naturally, I forgot to bookmark them.

DS is in reception and they're just starting to talk about them (terrifying, as I learnt the 2x table by rote in y4/5 so I was hoping to start exposing him to some of them - I think I've seen songs/videos mentioned?

If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd be very grateful!

Percy Parker CD of songs. So catchy and irritating. My class love/loathe them in equal measure.

Squeebles apps for tablets/phones are great too :-)

Hi MimsyBorogroves:

Various free times tables resources on-line I've found along the way include:

Woodlands Junior school Maths Zone: resources.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/maths/timestable/index.html - select division for inverse multiplication & then short (old fashioned long division) practice.

Mumsnet has a nice multiplication grid practice here: www.mumsnet.com/learning/maths/interactive-times-tables-activity

There maths champ link doesn't seem to be working at the moment - but if it revives - go through Education - Learning - Free home resources. Times table practice games ages 7 - 9 and 9 - 11.

Table trees is a lovely means of practicing individual times tables: www.amblesideprimary.com/ambleweb/mentalmaths/tabletrees.html - quite calm and relaxed.

If you need more pizzazz (for which read a bit of stress/ time pressure) try out Timez Attack - it's a video game based on dungeon and dragons format. You're basically a little ogre (boy or girl) running about solving multiplication problems. They review it as multiple additions and then recap what you've learned as a vertical multiplication problem. The free version has two platforms or you can pay for more. We found the free version was more than enough. Link here: www.bigbrainz.com/. They have a division version as well for inverse multiplication facts, which was also good fun.

Multiplication.com has all sorts of games to practice multiplication skills: www.multiplication.com/games - there also are some free worksheets.

Math drills has worksheets to help review multiplication tables/ facts: www.math-drills.com/multiplication.shtml

Worksheet works is a new website (in BETA - so in development) where you can create your own worksheets to drill multiplication tables/ facts you want to.

Worksheet works basic multiplication facts: www.worksheetworks.com/math/basic-operations/multiplication.html

Worksheet works multiplication drills: www.worksheetworks.com/math/basic-operations/drills/multiplication-drill.html

Worksheet works multiplication maths maze: www.worksheetworks.com/math/basic-operations/multiplication-maze.html

That should keep you busy.

Wow - thank you all. Will spend a fun(?) evening tonight looking through them. I may even learn something myself, as my maths is dire.
