TimesTables gets an update – save and view highest scores
Over the last few days, I’ve been playing around with a new toy I’ve built called “TimesTables”. As the name suggests, it’s designed to help kids young and old to drill and test their times table knowledge.
I’ve just finished a new update and it’s now available on the TimesTable website.
Basically, you can now save your scores and view the “leaderboard” for each of the five major tests (20, 30, 50, 75 and 100-questions).
I think it’s really important that kids learn maths (okay, “math” for you Americans… :)) to be able to get a head-start when it’s their turn to go job hunting. Sure, knowing your times tables isn’t likely to get you a job. But not knowing them will pretty well ensure you don’t get it.
I know – it’s not going to win any prizes for looks but hey, it works and that’s the main thing…
The software is free and works on Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 – it should run on just about any Intel or AMD computer that basically works.
