SPEED BOARDSWhat are they?
SPEED BOARDS have been developed by Andrew Findley, an experienced teacher specialising in KS2 maths.
“I’ve been experimenting for years with different learning methods and, without doubt, the boards are the most effective.”
Andrew believes in the importance of a strong grasp of time tables and, more tellingly, the incredible effect of daily practice.
The board is an A4 size wipe board printed with questions on both sides.
On one side are 88 random times tables that gradually increase from Year 2 to Year 4 requirements as the user works across the board.
The reverse is printed with the 88 division facts that match the times tables. There are also 8 measurement facts that all pupils should know.
Students simply answer the questions, wipe the board and start again. Gold, Silver and Bronze Certificates are awarded for speed of completion.
“It never ceases to amaze me how quickly students improve with only 8 minutes of Speed Board practice each day.”
