Times Alive offers interactive, online lessons with animated songs and stories to learn times tables the fun way. Multiplication facts 0-9 are covered in this online product. The website is easy to use, and kid friendly with lots of brightly colored graphics, cartoon character voices and easy to remember stories and songs. The site includes fun, quirky videos and songs to help students remember their math facts. I will say the songs are slightly annoying, simply because they get stuck in your head, as well as the kids head, while your student is learning. However, the fact that they get stuck in your head does prove the effectiveness of this learning method, grins.
Please note that the program remembers each child's records as long as they are logging in from the same electronic device. If your student uses a laptop for part of the work, then logs on from another device it will not cross reference the work that has been done.
Like I said at the beginning of the review, Lindsey is 11. She completed all the lessons in two days of working with the program. The lessons are short, so she plowed through pretty rapidly. She did pick up on the fact that the songs and graphics are geared more towards the younger crowd, however she still thought it was fun to use and she really did improve on her 7, 8 and 9 facts.
