inTABS™ (short for Interactive Tables) Multiplication Table is an ingenious book psychologically developed and tested in Oxford, England for instant mastery of the Times Table that last a life time! And it’s fun. Seriously fun!
Uniquely, the answers to the equations are concealed which means the learner has to interact with the book to obtain the answers. Each tab has an individual equation; opening that tab reveals the answer. This interactive or kinaesthetic learning creates powerful associations between the equations & answers for memory and instant recall through repeated interaction.
Simple, engaging, positively reinforcing: devastatingly effective! Click here to learn more.
inTABS enables a deeper appreciation of number symmetries and recurring patterns: Find all the 12’s – how quickly can you find and leave open all the tabs where the answer is 12? (Clue: there’s 6 of them.) Then progress to 24’s and 36’s and so on. Here the learner detects symmetries (3×4 is the same as 4×3 etc) and patterns (opening all the 12 answers forms an ‘arc’, same again for 24, 36 etc). A fun game to tangibly show what can be otherwise seem like abstract and complex notions. Try it against the clock or each other, it’s much more fun and interesting than an advent calendar!

Mastering Multiplication is KEY to maths proficiency (for division, fractions, algebra, long multiplication etc.) in same way the ABC is to literacy as research by the Schools Watchdof, Ofsted, found:
“Pupils without instant recall of the multiplication table struggle in maths” (Ofsted)
“Without [instant recall] it is like sending a plumber out to do a job without knowing how to use a spanner“ (Jean Humphrys, Ofsted’s education director)
This book is SEN (Special Education Needs) inclusive: one of the first books in the world using a special built-in dyslexia font and colors.
