Getting Started

Setting up your account

When the family subscribes for the first time, the parent will have specified their email address and a password. These are the login details into the family account.

Super important - Once logged in to the family account, the parent can click on the tile with their name to enter their personal account. From there they can add children via the Manage page.


  • Go to > Login > Family and enter your details
  • If you haven't already chosen a rock name, please do so now.
  • Once that's done, you should see the Manage icon at the bottom (small screen devices) or at the top (large screen devices).

The Manage page is where you can add child and parent accounts and set what tables you want them to practice.


For children to login, the parent logs in first. Once you're into the family account, children tap on their tile and enter their password (no username required).

Adding Parents

Family plans allow for two parent accounts. To add another one, login to your parent account, go to Manage, click on the 'Add Parent' button and fill in the required details. A short email will be sent to their email address with a link for them to click on. That's all there is to it.

Adding children

Login to the parent account (see above on how to do that) and go to Manage.

Click the 'Add Child' button and enter their details.

Please note that only three child accounts are available on a Family Plan.

Setting the tables

You can set the tables your children practice in Garage and Arena games by logging in to the parent account and going to Manage > Child account > Set the Tables. This allows children to focus on mastering fewer facts at a time, and is key to the success of Times Tables Rock Stars.

Super important - Tables can't be set once logged into the child account... you must be logged in as the parent. Also note that it affects the questions children receive in the Garage and Arena (not Studio or Festival).

What tables should you set? Please read!

We've tried out lots of different orders over the years and have two key pieces of advice.

  • Make it easy to start with. The temptation, even with younger yeargroups is to give them the 2s, 5s and 10s altogether. Bear in mind that each table is made up of 46 facts, not 12, so by selecting just three of the tables, you're actually putting nearly 150 facts in front of the children. Get them off to an easy start so that they fall in love with TTRS and build up the confidence they're going to need when it gets harder. Give them just one of the tables (see next piece of advice) and make it an easy one.
  • Related to the previous piece of advice, choose one table per week and then every third or fourth week give them a combo week. The most successful TTRS parents combine the tables slowly, like in the example schedules below.
    Week Year 2/Grade 1 Year 3/Grade 2 Year 4/Grade 3 Year 5+/Grade 4+
    Week 1 10s 3s 3s 3s

    4 Game Types

    There are four game types that differ according to whether you, as the parent, have set the tables and whether it's a single- or multi-player game. There are slightly different reasons why you might get children playing on a particular game type - it depends on the children's (st)age, whether it's the first time they're playing, and whether they're playing to improve or to compete.

    × 10


    Times-tables: restricted to those set by the parent (see above for how to do this). Roughly 1 in 4 questions are division.

    Reasons to play in the Garage: the Garage is designed to help children get faster sooner. After a few games, the TT Rock Star software engine starts to work out which number facts each child struggles with and then begins presenting those questions more frequently.

    We recommend that children play 3 times (a total of 3 minutes) in the Garage every day. It's up to you whether to play rock music while they practice :)

    It's free from the distractions of competing against other people and as an extra incentive, children get 10 coins per correct answer instead of 1. The focus, therefore, should be on competing against yourself.

    × 1


    Times-tables: unrestricted, i.e. questions from 1 × 1 up to 12 × 12 are possible. Roughly 1 in 5 questions are division.

    Reasons to play in the Studio: we would get children to play in the Studio to have a measure of their overall speed on all the times tables. Much like being in a recording studio, this is where we want TT Rock Stars to record their best performances.

    The TT Rock Star engine works out your mean score over the last 10 games in the Studio and it's your speed in the Studio that determines your rock status. The more questions on average that you answer correctly in a minute, the higher your status. Starting off as a Wannabe you get to Rock Star if your per question average is 3 seconds, Rock Legend if it's under 2 seconds or Rock Hero if your average speed is 1 second or less per question. See below for the full list of rock statuses.

    Fortunately, because it's based on the mean over the last 10 games, a single bad performance doesn't have an exaggerated effect on the status.

    × 1


    Times-tables: restricted to those set by the parent (see above for how to do this). Roughly 1 in 5 questions are division.

    Reasons to play in the Arena: The Arena, like the Garage, is only for practising the times tables that you - the parent - have set. The difference is that it's a multiplayer game for children to play only against other members of the family! You need to be logged in on separate devices to play against each other.

    A new Arena game starts every 15 seconds (you can see the clock counting down) and there is no difference in Wembley, Principality, etc. It just makes it easier for you to say to each other which game to play in, e.g. "Everyone join Wembley!"

    × 1


    Times-tables: unrestricted, i.e. questions from 1 × 1 up to 12 × 12 are possible. Roughly 1 in 5 questions are division.

    Reasons to play in the Festival: This is the multi-player version of the Studio - children face questions up to 12Ă—12 while competing against players from around the world.

    As with the Arena, the four different Festivals are to help you name the Festival you're joining. There is no difference in the format or type of questions between Glastonbury, Lollapolooza, etc.

    A new Festival game starts every 15 seconds and there is no limit to the number of players that each game will accept.
