  • 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:

    Set Measurable Goals

    First of all, set measurable goals. When you offer a big prize to students who learn all of their times tables from 1 to 12 in a given amount of time, it may motivate a few gifted students. But how do you reach those for whom learning the entire set of multiplication facts seems like an insurmountable task? Teach the times tables by breaking them up into easily learned chunks. The most logical way: teach one family of multiplication facts at a time.

  • I Love Rhino: The Power of Wristbands

  • Say No to Racism: Why Education and Awareness are Necessary in Our Schools

    National Reconciliation Week may have drawn to a close, but the fight against racism continues. The idea of these kinds of events is not just to provide a focus point for efforts to combat racism and to encourage tolerance and integration within society, but to highlight the need for ongoing awareness.

    multicultural, say no to racism

    The struggle against racism cannot be won in a day or even a week. Instead, it is won over time, by educating the next generation and by reinforcing attitudes of acceptance and unification across the board. When an event like National Reconciliation Week comes to an end for another year, this is the time in which
    we should be galvanising our efforts and re-emphasising the importance of saying no to racism every day, not just for one week out of 52.

  • Introducing Multibandz. Succeed in Maths AND have Fun!

    It’s never been easy getting kids to learn their multiplication and division tables, until multibandz.

    It wasn’t easy when we were kids. There were outdoor activities and other things vying for our attention. While there were far fewer television options then, the TV was still there to distract us.

    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.
