Be a Superstar
We're delighted that Times Tables Rock Stars is generously sponsoring the
'Be a Superstar for Schoolreaders' campaign.
The team at Times Tables Rock Stars is absolutely delighted to support Schoolreaders.
Whilst we are very passionate about maths, we also believe in the power of being literate and the joy of reading. Literacy is the foundation for all disciplines. Without the ability to read, write and think, other subject areas, such as maths, become a bigger challenge for students. It is for this reason (plus the fact that we are neighbours!) that we are proud to be sponsoring the “Be a Superstar for Schoolreaders” campaign.
WHAT IS TIMES TABLES ROCK STARS?
Times Tables Rock Stars is an award winning carefully sequenced paper, web and app-based programme of daily times tables practice. We have successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 8 years in over 14,000 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.
WHY DO STUDENTS LIKE IT?
Students can play in one of our five “rock themed” game modes, which are all cleverly sequenced to subtly ask the child the questions they find more difficult, more often, to ensure they master all the tables and improve their accuracy, as well as their speed. Many children thrive on the competitive element, so choose to play in a multiplayer game against their classmates or students around the world, whilst others focus on improving their rock speed and climbing the rockstar ranks, with the ultimate goal of achieving the status, "Rock Hero". Children enjoy the sense of achievement that comes from answering questions and earning coins, which they use to upgrade their rock avatar.
WHY DO TEACHERS LIKE IT?
Teachers love it because they can set up "Battle of the Band" competitions between classes, set specific homework assignments and follow their students' progress with access to useful stats. They can set a schedule of tables that's tailored to their pupils’ ability or can utilise an automatic training mode, which uses artificial intelligence to progress the child when they are ready to move on.
HOW DO I GET A FREE TRIAL?
Schools (both primary and secondary) are very welcome to take out a 4 week free trial to try it out with their students. Please go to https://ttrockstars.com/payment/trial.
