About Times Tables 1x1 - Easy Maths

Leo the Lion will help your children to learn and memorise the multiplication tables in this app.  Later, he represents them in a race between himself and his animal friends where multiplication knowledge is the key to victory.

Times Tables 1x1 - Easy Maths Review

The developer of Times Tables 1×1 makes a good point in reference to other times tables apps - most of them place a much greater emphasis on testing and practice rather than teaching the topic in the first place.  Picking answers to multiplications and selecting all of the numbers from within a times table are fine to build fluency, but what about those who are just starting to memorise the tables?

Times Tables 1×1 does have the practice and testing functionality of other apps.  The developer, in the app description, does not argue that these are of no use, just that they could do with some support for those at an earlier stage of learning.  In this app, practice and testing take the form of a race between the star of the app, Leo the Lion, and an animal competitor.  These animals form the basis of the difficulty levels as at first you face a turtle, whose natural speed makes it an easy challenge, but later the more fleet of foot creatures punish any mistakes by the player.  Correct answers see Leo pull ahead while incorrect ones see his competitor edge into the lead.  This is a multiple-choice quiz that covers the multiplication tables selected in the options.

What the app considers the most important part of the app is another section.  Users of the app are instructed to use this section daily for a short time.  In it, Leo holds up a variety of multiplications along with their answers.  A clear voice-over reads the whole thing out.  

The idea of this is that children can learn in a relaxed environment without the pressures of gameplay such as timers and lives lost.  Seeing and hearing the times tables helps to build familiarity and increase fluency.  Certainly, this will help with this, although most children will probably need some daily prompting to engage with what is essentially a passive experience.

A third activity builds upon the looking and listening aspect of the previous section.   It provides a similar experience except that there is a delay before the answer to the question is read out.  Children are challenged to say the answer themselves out loud before the app does.  Obviously, such an activity does not assess nor check how it is played but it could provide useful practice.   It is likely to be of most use with an adult supporting the child in their learning.  Using a device with this app to provide the questions, parents can help children with their thinking and provide encouragement and praise as it is needed.  This would be a really useful activity for parents and teachers.

Times Tables 1x1 offers a practice experience as good as any other times table app based upon multiple-choice questions.  The teaching aspects are welcome and useful although limited to the support of fluently learning the answers to times tables.  It would be nice if this expanded to provide some support to explain the basics of times tables, using the concepts of arrays and commutability, for example.

There is a very fair offer for those who are interested in this app but unsure if it is for their child.  You can get the app for free and it is fully functional except for not covering the 7,8,9 times tables.  An in-app purchase extends the coverage to these and players can select which of the entire range that they wish to learn or practise.  Across England and Wales, children follow a curriculum where they are expected to learn up to 12×12 so you will need to find another way to cover these higher numbers.

As the app in its free form contains such a full experience you have nothing to lose by downloading it and seeing how your child responds to the learning that it provides.  It does what many other multiplication apps do and a little more besides so you might find that you love and your child love it!
