Although we don't do a formal homeschooling math curriculum, we have been re-visiting our times tables the last few weeks (to be fair - I am the one who needs the practice!). Some of these resources are already on my site, but I thought it would be useful to pull them all together.
I have previously posted about The Multiplication Tables: Colouring Book The children work out the answers to a multiplication table and use the answers to colour in a picture puzzle (and so reveal a hidden image). They have been fun, and there is a second multiplication book, and an addition one. You will find a full list at Tarquin Books. This would be a great addition to your homeschool math books.
Big Brainz have a multiplication PC game called Timez Attack. You can download a free trial version. Mine love it!
Maths is Fun has lots of tips and tricks for remembering your math times tables, and an online multiplication test (scroll right down to the bottom of the page).
Trigger Memory System have a program called Times Tales. I really like the sound of this, and would have bought it if I could have downloaded it! It works on visual mnemonics which is something we have used to learn some Italian words - and that did really work. Time-Tables have a downloadable 3D e-book using the same system to teach times tables. There is a free trial version available.
The Toymaker has a couple of times tables games for printing.
Oh my goodness! I am a home schooling mum of 4 and I have NEVER found a better site! Thank you so much.
