DoodleTables boosts the times tables confidence and ability of your 4-14 year old with a personalised work programme tailored to their strengths and weaknesses. A subscription to DoodleMaths (whether that is through a home user subscription or a school subscription) comes with a subscription to DoodleTables - it is part of your package and therefore something to really utilise.
Within DoodleTables each timestables is broken down through the ‘Learn’ exercises to help children understand the relationships between numbers, building their knowledge of what the times tables are and developing their instant recall. As children progress, DoodleTables develops to further encourage instant recall through the ‘60-Second Challenge’ feature.
These are the two ways that children can commit their times tables from their working memory to their long term memory.
Whilst some children can memorise their tables just by repeating them, children who find maths challenging need more opportunities to make links and see relationships in order for times tables to become instantly recallable. In order to appear to all learners, DoodleTables takes advantage of both methods of learning.
Our questions are carefully graded to ensure a child’s learning journey becomes ever so slightly more difficult as they progress.
Our Learn questions purposely encourage children to make links and see relationships between the numbers to help them form a deep understanding of what the times tables are in order to help them retain facts and, most importantly, build their confidence.
Our Challenge section of DoodleTables provides the perfect opportunity for children to assess for themselves how many facts they can recall in 60 seconds (multiplication or division), this becomes especially useful if they are preparing for the year 4 multiplication tables check (MTC).
