A word on timestables. Preparing for the QTS Skills Test.

Timestables.  

You're probably saying things like that:

 I'm terrible at my tables.  

I've never been good at my tables

I can do the 9's on my fingers

STOP RIGHT NOW

9 times out of 10 my students say this.  

In fact, they simply can't tell me at lightning speed their timestables.

I once read, that the two most stressful things were wedding speeches and mental maths.  Makes sense right?  You're put on the spot and expected to perform.

Funnily I'm good at both

But enough about that.  Let's focus on you.

You probably don't know these.  Nail these and you will rock it.

6 x 7 = 42

7 x 7 = 49

8 x 7 = 56

8 x 8 = 64

That's it, done.

Ciao

p.s 

If you're really struggling, write them down just before you enter the test.
