  1. The tutor or student rolls two twelve-sided dice- let’s say we roll a 6 and a 10. The student writes their answer in their book and then corrects their answer by checking under the 6 x 10 tabs. This same activity can use an app called ‘Let’s Decide’ which is basically a roulette/spinning wheel that a teacher/tutor can create to suit a particular times table or all 144 times tables or whatever. You spin the wheel and answer the times table that the wheel lands on- student writes their answer, checks it using inTABS and spins again.
  2. A variation of game 1 would be to introduce a point scoring system using the unique shape coding feature of inTABS (the most recurring answers are shape coded: hexagon, diamond and circle) e.g. any answers that are a green square (non-most recurring answers) score 1 point, any answers that are a hexagon (24) score 2 points, any answers that are a circle (36) score 3 points and any answers that score a diamond (24) scores 4 points. Student keeps a progress tally of total points scored i.e. add points for correct answers and deduct points for incorrect answers. The game finishes when the student reaches 100 points.
