Mr Reddy comments on the Multiplication Tables Check.
“Knowing the tables AND learning the underlying structures are both important because all the interesting maths is based on multiplicative relationships. Schools focus on what their pupils are tested on, therefore they’ll invest in these tables tests.
There are concerns over the tests:
1. The anxiety they may cause.
2. The admin burden.
3. Whether they’re right for every learner.”
A very thoughtful video and overview from Mr Reddy. We think it’s good advice.
