‘Times Tables’ are essential tool for mathematical fluency; they ‘free up’ the brain to focus upon the problem rather than working out calculations. Teaching them separately, as ‘facts’ to be remembered, disconnects the learner’s understanding of what they are and how they are related to essential concepts such as multiples, factors, fractions, scaling and much more.

Thank you for showing us HOW to change. So many courses just tell us what isn't working but not how to go about addressing this. Your approaches make so much sense!
Just to say thank you again for 3 really brilliant talks at SGIS. We're a small school near Basel and we’d be interested in anything you’re doing nearby (Zurich way) so please let us know!
