The MTC will be different for each and every child as the test features a set of 25 generated times tables questions.
Pupils will have 6 seconds to read the question, understand it, and enter a response. They will then receive a 3 second pause before the next question is shown.
So with 9 seconds for each question and 25 questions, the test will take 225 seconds or 3 minutes 45 seconds.
Questions will be made up from the 2-12 multiplication tables. The table shown here gives the maximum and minimum number of questions that will be presented to the pupils.
As seen with the pilots in June 2019, a lot of children struggled with entering the answers in the strict time limits. We hope that by practising with MTC with Emile students will become comfortable with what they have to do.
Times Tables with Emile includes much more. It includes an assessment module to determine students strengths & then gives them appropriate games and activities. They can play against friends or against students from across the world. For more information please see here.
We have drafted a letter suitable for teachers to amend and send home to their parents. The letter explains the Year 4 Multiplication tables Check (MTC) and how they are not to become concerned by it.
With your Free access to our MTC resource you also get access to Times Tables with Emile, where your students can compete against one another and other classes to see who is a Master of Times Tables and explore the Planet of Meso and discover the true power of times tables.
