My times tables site is now back online at times-tables.willis-owen.co.uk. Rote learning is no longer fashionable but it still remains an effective tool to get kids to memorise times tables instead of trying to work out the sum in their heads each time.
Although this site is simple, it gives competitive kids a sense of achievement and there is nothing to distract them from the task at hand.
For parents there is no marketing / advertising and no agenda.
It has been updated to use the superb PHP Fat-Free Framework v3.5 which is now installable using Composer.
