Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice in a game like format. Cognitive research tells us that students need to automate mathematical skills such as their times tables, in order to free their working memory so that they can focus on learning more complex skills and concepts.
Our Year 7 students begin each Mathematics lesson completing the game like program on the TTRS website for a couple of minutes (or as long as it takes to listen to the accompanying rock song!).
It would be great if this practice could continue at home as well. As such, we would like to ask parents to encourage their daughters to join a Gig, Garage, Jamming, Studio, Soundcheck, Festival, Arena or Rockslam, so as to improve speed and accuracy!
