## Times Tables made Easy Review

Kids can learn about the importance of times tables, memorise them, and improve their speed of recall in Times Tables made Easy.  Set among 3 hours of animations, there are numerous learning and practising opportunities.

It is important to memorise the times tables but it is also very useful for children to understand the relationships between the numbers used in them and this is often neglected in times tables apps.  This app goes deeper into the relationships between numbers than most of its competitors.

In its introduction section, the app's cartoon characters explain the relationship between multiplication and division and give tips on how to use number relationships.  Children are not just learning to remember the times tables in this app but to use them effectively too.

All of the teaching and learning content in Times Tables made Easy is crystal clear on the screen and full of animations.  The teaching is given by the many animal-based characters working alone or together.  They give clear spoken information accompanied by useful supporting animations.  Numbers and visual aids give children something concrete to latch on to as they learn.

The explanations are clear and easy to follow.  Dressed up with friendly characters full of personality and charm, they will make the process of learning, memorising and practising times tables much more fun than it is with just a sheet of paper.  The on-screen personalities give enthusiastic encouragement and excitable reactions.

Children move through the times tables in order of difficulty.  Patterns and properties within the times tables are highlighted so that by the time it comes to relying on pure memory skills, children have already learned the bulk of the times tables.  They start with 0 and 1 is included too.  Each teaching section is followed by an interactive tips activity where children can practice and receive feedback.  The practice questions reached after that are not just based around the numbers alone but built around real-world word problems which highlight that times tables have a practical use and are not just numbers to remember.

The app's required storage space on your device is larger than you might think on download as when you open a new section of the app, it initiates a further download.  There's nothing wrong with this - an app with so much animation and sound is going to need plenty of storage.

One thing to watch out for, though, is that these downloads are needed for each section.  When a child moves on to a new times table, they will have to wait while the download takes place.  How much time this takes will depend on the internet connection to which their device is connected.  At over 150mb each, this delay could be frustrating for children if they are keen to learn and are on a slow connection.  You can go through each section in advance to preload them ready for your child but an option to download the full content in a single tap would be welcome and less fiddly.

The app is suited for a household with more than one young learner and schools too as the app can remember the performance of multiple users who each have their own password-protected area.

Times Tables made Easy is a great app for kids who are learning the times tables.  Not only does it look great and provide an engaging environment for children, but it really goes the extra mile in making sure that kids understand times tables and don't just memorise them.  There are no subscriptions or in-app purchases to endure with this app.  A one-off purchase and your child is ready to go and learn all about the times tables.
