A maths app that uses music and artificial intelligence to help children learn their times tables has resulted in a brand-new world record.
Times Tables Rock Stars, which was introduced into classrooms across the UK after receiving funding from SHINE, has achieved remarkable results.
Youngsters who previously didn’t enjoy maths have become times table whizzes, able to complete many sums in a minute.
Keen to discover who was the fastest in the world, TT Rock Stars teamed up with Guinness World Records to create a new title, “Highest score achieved on Times Tables Rock Stars in one minute”.
700 official attempts were made with many children practising their times tables during lockdown. The competition was fierce with some excellent scores submitted by children from all around the world.
However, the title was claimed by 10-year-old Nadub Gill, who answered an astonishing 196 multiplication and division questions correctly in one minute. That is more than three correct answers per second!
Nadub, who attends Longmoor Primary School in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, said: “I am very thrilled and excited to achieve this title. It is like a dream!”.
