    This looks great, but when I opened it in Excel (erm 2014?), all I got in the top left box was a single number, not a question, and the instructions said to click “new game” but there was nothing that said “new game”. Any idea what I might be doing wrong? Thanks!

    This looks amazing. However, just a quick query. Would like to trial this, but I was wondering what do you do if a student can’t answer a question or gives the wrong answer? Will it timeout and go on to the next question? Many thanks for your help. I’m really looking forward to trying this.

      Sorry to pester but does anyone who may have already used this have any ideas?
      Many thanks

        Hi Sarah, I personally would let them use a mini-whiteboard to work out the solution. It may take them time, but I believe will help them to learn them over time if they are struggling. You could also then suggest ways of doing it faster mentally, eg with 7 x 8 suggest doing (5 x 8) + (2 x 8).

    Very neat. My only suggestion would be to work on the squares of the times to really get into the ones the student is struggling with.
