I remember my son coming home dancing and singing to his times tables, he loved it. He knew all of his times tables in year 5. Not only was it so much fun for him, it was amazing how quickly he learnt them. I still tell all my friends today. It was contagious - the whole family was dancing. It also made his transition into maths in senior schooling so much easier for him as it's the important tool they need for all their maths.
Rosie found it easy to adapt her timetables to songs and remember them to the rhythms. Funnily enough, out of all my 4 kids she has the most substantial memory of her timetables and was the only one taught by Jo.
Such a fantastic idea and concept, my 17 year old daughter still sings her timetables now when studying as they have stuck in her head since 2007 when she first used this concept. She now teaches her younger sibling their timetables in the same way, much more enjoyable than old style learning. A fantastic concept
I am now in yr 11 at Marcellin College Randwick. If it wasn't for Miss Taylor's teaching of the times tables in song form I would not know them off by heart today. She was amazing it makes maths so easy for me today in senior school. Thank you so much Miss Taylor
What helped me the most from learning my tables like this was that we did it in a song, which was fun and it helped me learn because I felt like it was a game and it wasn't maths. I'm a person who struggles with maths, but by doing this, it totally improved my timetable skills

I remember it was always tricky and confusing to try and learn my times tables. Thanks to Jo and her wonderful songs, I still know them off by heart to this day even with the songs! It was such an innovative and creative idea that got everyone excited to learn and is a very useful technique for future references
Without Ms Taylors timetables to various upbeat well known songs I probably would not have just a strong knowledge of my timetables. I am in year 12 now and still am singing Dancing Queen to my 12 times tables
Times Tables are the basis of all numeracy. For many children having fun is not usually synonymous with Maths learning, but using this method, children get to achieve both. I've seen this in action and it is by far the most effective and motivating technique for children to learn their tables.
Watching children totally engaged in the learning experience is every teachers dream.
The kids I tutor are loving it! I've been Tutoring them for a year and slowly getting progress, then I give them maths rockx and they nearly know them all in a week!! (I'm out of a job!!) Lol!
What an amazing app, developed by a bright, dedicated, amazing teacher!! Today Jo came into my classroom to introduce this app to my students... They absolutely loved it!!! We were singing our times tables for the whole day.... And the next morning the children asked if we'd be 'rocking' our tables out ever day!!! In my 13 years of teaching, I've never seen the children so eager to learn their tables!! Every child's iPad needs to have this amzing app!!! :)

Using the app Maths Rockx, had made learning a whole lot easier and fun at the same time. Sometimes if I ever forget my times tables I'm always humming the song and the tables come to my head straight away. Plus another great feature about the app is that you can learn your times tables while rocking out to some of the latest hits today!!
P.s the 5's are my favourite
