Product description for parents
Times Tables Tests provides regular and structured times tables practice, helping children to strengthen their understanding of essential multiplication and division facts, before progressing to apply these facts to solve problems based on real-life situations. To further boost confidence and rapid recall skills, children are encouraged to work against the clock, which will also help them to prepare for timed examinations. All the tests are similar in format to those in Schofield & Sims Mental Arithmetic and may be used in conjunction with this series or independently.
Aimed at pupils in Years 2 and 3, Times Tables Tests 1 features 24 single-page tests covering the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. The short tests increase in difficulty over the course of the book and follow a consistent three-part format, comprising:
- Part A – includes illustrations to help pupils understand the ideas of multiplication
- Part B – introduces mathematical notation so that pupils become familiar with signs, symbols and simple maths words
- Part C – tests pupils on word problems, allowing them to apply their knowledge of times tables facts and related division facts in real-life contexts.
Two Progress tests with accompanying Results charts enable children to see their consistency and speed build over time. A separate teacher’s guide, Times Tables Tests Teacher’s Guide, contains answers to all tests in the series, as well as guidance on teaching and reinforcing tables facts.
