Learn the way you want to

The free version of TT Ultra comes with a starter pack of times tables unlocked and with most of them selected. However, you don’t have to stick with that. You can focus on one or two tables or add variety by selecting all of them. If your child’s homework says to practise the 2 times table, then just select it. Need to practise 1, 2, 5 and 10? That’s fine, you can choose all of those or any other combination and change them as often as you like.

When the time comes to practise additional tables or if you just want more choice, then an in-app-purchase allow you to unlock all the tables from 1x to 12x and other options too. As before, you can select any one or more tables plus other options. It’s up to you.

The current version has three additional types of question. When selected, each adds the new set of questions into a random mix for your child on top of the standard type.

The optional types start with Reverse Table Questions and this presents questions backwards or reversed. So, for example, if you were practising the 3 times tables, you’d normally get questions like…

  • 11 x 3 = [ ? ]
  • 8 x 3 = [ ? ]
  • 2 x 3 = [ ? ]

With reverse questions, you would also see these questions backwards. The answers are the same but it gives your child a different way to learn the table. For example…

  • 3 x 11 = [ ? ]
  • 3 x 8 = [ ? ]
  • 3 x 2 = [ ? ]

Division Questions makes TT Ultra show divisions using the numbers within the times table. For example, if you have the 5x table selected, the app would show extra questions such as…

  • 50 ÷ 5 = [ ? ]
  • 10 ÷ 5 = [ ? ]
  • 60 ÷ 5 = [ ? ]

The division option can be combined with the reverse question to show a larger variety of randomly generated division questions and add in questions such as…

  • 50 ÷ 10 = [ ? ]
  • 10 ÷ 2 = [ ? ]
  • 60 ÷ 12 = [ ? ]

The final choice is Missing Place and this is a different form of question. Instead of your child having to answer, these questions show the answer and instead ask, what number is missing? For example, in the 6 times table…

  • [ ? ] x 6 = 60
  • 6 x [ ? ] = 36
  • [ ? ] x 6 = 12

Finally, all three question options can be enabled at once. This combination would result in a diverse set of questions, for example, with just the 6 times table selected you could see…

  • 6 x 8 = [ ? ]
  • 30 ÷ 5 = [ ? ]
  • 4 x 6 = [ ? ]
  • 12 ÷ [ ? ] = 6
  • [ ? ] x 6 = 24
  • [ ? ] ÷ 6 = 5

…plus many more randomly generated questions.
