How to teach … times tables

Everyone knows it's all about practice, and this can get tiresome. So how to drum these basic skills into your pupils' heads without turning them off? The Guardian Teacher Network has some great resources and ideas to help provide a solid times tables platform for students while at the same time helping teachers (and parents at home, where much of the practising must be done) to keep it fresh. One of the network's star resource providers, maths teacher Mel Muldowney, explains: "Students coming to secondary without knowing their times tables often think they can't do what they are learning in class. They might sit in class thinking they can't do Pythagoras' Theorem as they are not getting the right answer when multiplying, say, seven times seven – but it's not the new work they aren't grasping. has some fantastic free maths games on times tables.
