When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important. The more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do more complex calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables! To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12x12 in less that 3 seconds!
There are four different game modes, which you can try.
Single player game modes:
Garage- the questions will only come from the times tables I have set for that week. As pupils start to answer questions, TT Rock Stars works out which facts they take longer on and will give them more of these questions to answer. The Garage is best for getting quicker at a few facts. Players get 10 coins per question.
Studio-The questions in studio can be anything from 1x1 up to 12x12. TT Rock Stars calculates the mean speed from their last 10 games in the studio and translates into a Rock Status. they earn 1 coin per question and the studio is the place for them to set their best time across all the tables.
Rock Arena- The Area allows player to compete against all other members of their band. A new area game starts every 15 seconds and once the clock starts they race to answer more questions that the others. In the Arena, questions will only come from the times tables the teacher has set for the week, similar to the garage. They earn one coin per correct answer.
Rock Festival- the rock festivals are open to players from around the world. Like the Arena, there is no limit to the number of players who can join a game; however, unlike Arena, questions are selected at random from 1x1 to 12x12. Pupils might choose the Rock Festival if they were playing at home or wanted to compete against others not in their band. They earn 1 coin per correct answer.
