This was just what we needed, weeks of pulling out my hair and this got them memorized in 2 lessons!! A must for visual learners! we worked on multiplication for months, he understood the concept but was not retaining math facts, we tried several different approaches....but nothing was helping...this came highly recommended and it was worth every penny. I wish I'd known about it sooner!!

Without Times Tales learning our upper multiplication facts would have been a stressful, crying, nerve-wrecking event. Times tales made it easy, fun, and quick!! I would recommend that children who use it have a basic understanding of multiplication concepts. The younger early 3rd grade girl has some slight dyslexic tendencies, and some of the stories require you to put together two separate digits into a two digit solution. The key is to make sure the child knows which digit was named first, and that will be the first digit in the answer. Just a little more review cleared up this problem quickly. I love it. It really saved us from tons of stress! And the set-up is like a game show so it's so fun!! Get it!! Lol

Memorizing numbers and equations can be difficult. By creating stories for the numbers and equations, the process is made so much easier. Your child will literally learn the difficult multiplication/division equations in a couple of weeks. It's simple and works amazingly well. A couple of the stories are a little more difficult to learn. For example, the 7 x 8 story involves two characters driving 1 mile over the 55 mph speed limit. Unfortunately, my 9 year old wasn't very familiar with speed limits, so it wasn't a relevant as other stories, but don't let this quirk prevent you from trying this fantastic teaching supplement. I'm so glad we learned about this product. It's worth every penny of the purchase price and it really will produce multiplication success without stress.

My autistic son was struggling greatly with learning his multiplication tables. A friend of mine loaned me her "times tales" to see if it would help. He learned it in 3 days. However, being autistic :) he refused to even consider the lower numbers because they had no "story". We had to make up our own "stories" for the smaller numbers and the 12's. Overall....a big lifesaver!
