The cards in action!

it really works!

Tackling Tables has revolutionised the way children learn their times tables and is an excellent, effective and best of all, fun way to do this. The app is perfect, easy to use and the customer support is so good. The Tackling Tables team respond so quickly and take a genuine interest in each customer. As an adult in their 50s, I am really enjoying Tackling Tables too! Highly recommend for all!

May I say, how fabulous Tackling Tables is? We’ve got children who absolutely love it, it’s highly competitive and has raised the profile of tables across the school. I cannot thank you enough for this amazing resource.

Paul Appleton (Cherry Tree Hill Primary School Headteacher)

Overall, Tackling Tables has supported them in becoming fluent with their times tables and also increased their confidence in their mathematical ability overall.As an aside, I just wanted to let you know that Priya got her 100% for percentages yesterday! She is so delighted as am I!

Jyoti Halford (Parent)

Fraser and I have watched the teaching clips on the Tackling Tables website and found them really clear and easy to follow. Fraser was able to explain what you were doing after watching each clip a couple of times. Great resource for parent and child!

Kelly Waterfield (Parent)

My children were unaware that they had willingly had a maths lesson! I will be recommending these cards to our home school group and even though it’s aimed at younger children, it’s a great recap for teens to brush up on their decimal skills.

Jenna Halstead (Parent)

Undoubtedly, Tackling Tables has revolutionised our children's enthusiasm, understanding and fluency of times tables. The card game is fun, exciting and engaging for children.

Jocelyn Knight (Maths Lead - King's Cliff Endowed Primary School)
