Tables topics:

Multiplication tables go up to 10 or to 12. There is a choice of which way round to present each table e.g. 1x7 or 7x1 and you can practise a table in order or mix it up.

There is a structured sequence of topics to ease the learning of tables for those who find it difficult. 

Fractions topics:

The fractions topics are finely graded and seek to include the underlying concepts. Recommended games are useful and you can experiment with different ways in which fractions can be displayed.
