Why Use a Numeric KeyPad?
Your pupils may know their tables but will they be able to enter the answers fast enough when given the on screen Multiplication Tables Check? They only have a few seconds to add their answer and if they don’t enter it in time the screen will move onto the next question. So it is essential that they practice entering numbers quickly.
For those students who find fast number entry a problem, you might like to try a Numeric KeyPad.
