Aly Ward from Hawkinge Primary School, Kent takes a look at Daily Times Tables Teasers Ages 5-7 for us.
The innovative nature of the resource
There are many resources that contain such ideas as this but I have yet to see them collected together is one resource and this makes it more useful. I have not seen any maths resources set out under the learning styles. The impact on learning and the work of the teacher in the classroom, to what extent and in which areas I think that this will be a useful resource as the activities can be quickly administered without too much preparation time. The teaching of tables is often a difficult thing especially for less able pupils and they often dislike maths. This is a good way to make it fun and adapted to meet those pupils who are not auditory learners (as that is the most common way for tables to be taught)
How the resource supports or enhances the everyday life or work of teachers, pupils or school
All pupils need to learn their tables as it is an integral part of maths. I think that teachers will probably try some of the games and stick to their (and the pupils) favourites. There is such a big choice they there is something for everyone. For those who need more practise than others they will be able to try many different activities and this should stop the practise from becoming stale. They could even be suggested as homework activities.
Cost effectiveness in terms of educational aims and results – not just price.
There are many commercially available ways to teach tables and these can be fun e.g. Maths Whizz but this shows that it can be more cost effective to do it yourself. With interactive whiteboards teachers can adapt these ideas and make their own resources. Initially it seems expensive for a fairly thin book but when you realise how many activities are contained then it seems value for money.
