Welcome to ‘Know Your’™ Times Tables, and CONGRATULATIONS, you are now in possession
of a very important and powerful system to help your children understand and know
their tables thoroughly. Here in the U.K. we are 27th in the world numeracy league
tables. This embarrassment needs immediate attention – you now have the means to
improve this situation.
‘Know Your’™ Times Tables is a revolutionary new quality system unlike anything else
available today. It will teach your children of all ages and abilities their times
tables in a quicker and more effective way than any other methods.
This system is available NOW in a high quality 380 piece boxed set. The system is
very easy to use and can be taught by anybody from teachers, home tutors, parents
or grandparents, and the set comes with full, easy to follow, step by step instructions
that will get your children proficient in their tables in no time at all and before
all their peers.
If you are concerned about your child’s numeracy, particularly their times tables,
and want to dramatically improve it easily, then buy now!
This system is different to anything else available today for learning tables. It
is extremely effective because children respond far better when they can touch, feel,
think and participate in something tangible. With this system there is nothing to
write down, no computer involved, and no boring singing by rote – just a single card
which the child has to carefully place in the correct position. This enables a child
to devote all their thoughts and efforts to think only of where the card should be
placed, making their recall and remembering much quicker and better than any other
conventional method of learning their tables. It is important children see the relationship
between numbers, rather than just reciting them. Even though the answers are obviously
still the same, the fact that the answer cards are always shuffled ensures the answers
present themselves differently every time. This heightens and improves the child’s
awareness and thinking of where to place a card – ensuring they don’t forget. (Please
see tutorial demonstration video page).

The ‘Know your’™ Times Tables system can be used at home with parents or tutors on
one to one, at school in small groups, or with a whole class in school. It is ideal
for statemented and underachieving children where a slow more intimate approach is
Can be used one-to-one, small groups or a whole class
As a child becomes more proficient in knowing their times tables they should be introduced
to the concept of division as soon as possible! Realising that multiplying and dividing
are related by being the opposite of each other. Add to and enhance the ‘know your’™
Times tables boxed set by turning it into a complete dividing system. All you would
need are just twelve division strips (as shown below) in order to show your child
how similar times and divide are. For only £6.95 (inc 1st class postage and packaging)
The twelve division strips will fit in the front of your existing box next to times
table strips for convenience. The same blue square numbered cards and coloured times
table answer cards can be used (as shown below).
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
For younger or slower or less able children, who may be overwhelmed by seeing all
12 strips laid out in front of them, start by setting out the first few or just half
the full table. Also have the answers face up on the table so they could take their
time in choosing the correct position for an answer card. You could help and encourage
them to work out all the answers before letting them try to pick a face down card
from the shuffled pile. This makes it less daunting so that a child can understand
and remember the answers in smaller bite sized units.
This system is ideal for use in a schools, special needs department’s for small groups
or in a one to one situation.
Encourage your children at home to use the ‘know your’™ Times Table System on their
own once they know what to do. They will enjoy setting out all the strips and shuffling
the answer card themselves. A child will seldom get bored with this method because
the answers come out in a different way every time the cards are shuffled. Get them
to time themselves, or each other if playing with a brother, sister or friend to
see who is the quickest. If your child begins to remember the answer too easily and
quickly (which is excellent and the whole point of using the system anyway!) why
not challenge them even further by mixing up all the strips first and placing them
in a random order.
Now shuffle thoroughly all the answers for the chosen table, place face down as before,
and take the top card to place in the correct position.
It is impossible for a child to remember all the answers in their normal sequence.
This not only makes it more challenging and interesting but it enforces and improves
their memory for what they are seeing and subconsciously learning – ensuring they
don’t easily forget.
