What is the Garage?

The Garage is the place to spend time learning your times tables facts.

Playing in the Garage will help you learn your tables. It will make sure you do lots and lots of repetition because that is the best way to learn.

Deeper Explanation For Parents

When children log into TT-Rock Stars for the first time they must do their first gig (a baseline assessment). They will then be given an Automatic Training Level based on their score. When children play in the Garage, questions are set based on this Automatic Level and this is where we recommend children to practise.

In order for children to complete a set of times tables they must be able to answer both multiplication and division facts for that times table in under 3 seconds.

Once they have completed their training on a specific times table in the Garage they will then be tested on it again in the next gig.

If they score high enough in their next gig, they will then progress to a new set of tables in the following order: 10x, 2x, 5x, 3x, 4x, 8x, 6x, 7x, 9x, 11x, 12x.
