Teacher Overview

Times Tables Rockstars encourages daily times-table practice.

Teacher Review

The app allows the children to create a rock star character and then practise their times tables and the corresponding division facts – they are rewarded with ‘money’ and can ‘buy’ things for their rock star. They can see their own progress and compare themselves to other users.
Children can play single or multiplayer games and work their way through the ranks of Busker, Rock Star and Rock Legend, depending on how quickly and accurately they can answer the questions. The teacher can select which times tables are focused on each week, but there is a 20-week schedule that can be used as a guide. There are lots of printable resources, too.

Times Table Rock Stars programme has one aim - to boost times table recall speeds.

Benefits of Times Table Rock Stars
  • Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of the pupil so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question.
  • The clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each pupil is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until pupils have mastered them.
  • It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts
