We need to learn our times tables so that we know our multiplication facts within 5 seconds of being asked. We need to know them so that we can be asked them in any order, not just by counting up the multiples.
The Gladiator times-table game, which we enjoy in class, is a first class way of putting ourselves under pressure so that we develop our times tables rapid recall skills.
Gladiator boards up to the 12 x table are now available to select from. There is even a Gladiator board involving decimals!
Playing Gladiator games regularly will improve our speed-square personal bests!
