Times Tables Rockstars
Times Tables Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme that helps the children to master their tables.
When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables!
Your child’s teacher has introduced them to how Times Tables Rock Stars works and the appropriate times tables to practice on a weekly basis will be allocated. They will have been allocated a username and password so they can access this at home.
There are two single player modes to play:
Garage – This is the main mode the children should play. The questions will only come from the times tables the teacher has set for the week. As pupils start to answer questions, TT Rock Stars works out which facts they take longer on and will give them more of these questions to answer.
Studio – the questions in the Studio can be anything from 2×2 up to 12×12. TT Rock Stars calculates each the mean speed from their last 10 games in the Studio and translates into a Rock Status.
There are also multi-player modes:
Rock Arena – The Arena allows players to compete against all other members of their Band/Class (their Band mates would need to join the same game in order to compete together).
Rock Festival – The Rock Festival games are open to players from around the world. The questions are selected at random from 2×2 to 12×12.
It is recommended that that your child does a little bit of times table practice every night. Short bursts of practise on a daily basis are more effective than spending hours once a week.
It’s absolutely essential that your child regularly does a little bit of practice. Short burst practice on a daily basis is more effective than spending hours once a week.
