  • Times Table Wristbands and Tips for Mathematics Teachers

    times table wristbandsIf you’re like most mathematics teachers, you may have a challenge on your hands when you teach the times tables. Rote learning—or writing endless facts over and over—just won’t cut it for most of your students. Here are some tips that can help you reach students of varied learning styles and abilities:

    Today it’s even tougher to get kids to focus on their studies when they are out of the classroom, with smartphones, tablets, and television all stealing kids' attention.

    Not only has it not been easy, but it was also usually drudgery, too. In the old days, it was tables written on a chalkboard, flash cards, and rote memorisation from reciting them in class. It was similar to a trip to the dentist – a lot of teeth pulling – and almost as much fun.
