Author(s): Stephen Chadwick

Activity

Singing Times Tables Book 1 by Helen MacGregor and Stephen Chadwick uses rhythmic rapping and vibrant vocals to transform learning the times tables - whether it's rote learning, applying calculations or testing them. For times tables with a special x factor, these contemporary, cool songs are the place for kids to start. Higher standards in maths are getting an extra push from the Department for Education with a target for pupils to know their times tables up to 12x12 by age 9. In Singing Times Tables Book 1, children develop a secure knowledge of the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables. By rapping or singing to lively performance and backing tracks they rote learn the tables, then they apply the calculations in real life situation songs and chants. The last section offers question and answer tests - a handy assessment tool for teachers.
