inTABS™ ‘brings learning to life’ for instant mastery that lasts a life-time.
inTABS™ in the classroom:
- If the class is working on a particular times table to learn e.g. their sevens: give the pupils time to study the 7x table by opening and closing the x7 table grid tabs.
- Ask the pupils now to close all the tabs on the 7x grid.
- The teacher instructs the pupils that they will now read a series of answers from the x7 grid and the pupils are to identify and leave open the tab with that equation which results in that answer e.g. if the teacher says 42, pupils are to correctly identify and leave open the 7×6 tab; for 63 the 7×9 tab and so on.
- The teacher can go around checking that the pupils have left open the correct tab before moving on to the next one.
- This method can also be used to test how quickly the pupils can open the correct tab and maybe offer rewards/incentives for who can do it the fastest.
- This method should be used to progress through each of the times tables grids and once they have completed that, the pupils can be tested on random answers and they have to open all the tabs that result in that answer e.g. for 12 they would have to identify and leave open the followings tabs: 1×12, 2×6, 3×4, 4×3, 6×2 and 12×1 and so on.
