The project, designed to teach young people to learn and recall the times table, has been developed by rising young Birmingham recording artist ‘Izzy’ and founder/Director Clifford Harding, in a creative, practical, easy and fun procedure – music and rhyme. Behind this project there is a team of four: Firstly there is Clifford who came up with the idea and enlisted the help of Izzy, a 16 year old, local rapper, his sister, Tezlin Newell – Harding, the singer of the group and Chris Dixon aka CD Plus. Clifford named these three talented performers the ‘3T’s’, as in ‘The Three Teachers’. Izzy is already becoming a star among students throughout Birmingham for his performances of the Tune Times Tables and says. “This programme has helped young people who would have otherwise skipped maths class because they either disliked it or found it too hard want to learn the times table from 1-12”. The innovative Tunes Times Tables geared towards 5-14 year olds has been praised for its success by Maths Teachers, who have used the programme, for motivating young people to learn and improve their maths skills, especially for young people with behavioural problems, learning difficulties and low self-confidence. Created by Birmingham born Clifford Harding, whose previous life of petty crime was turned around towards efforts to help under privileged communities and young people – who struggled through school he way he did – to produce the perfect formula to help young people with their dreaded maths, most notably the times tables. Clifford says: “Tunes Times Tables is a fun creative educational programme, that enables young people to learn their times tables through lyrical content and music.” “But most importantly to see that maths can be fun too!” Clifford’s successful method of amalgamating maths and music has become more and more popular across the Birmingham region, with effective results on students achievement levels. All those involved and participated feel strongly that the distinctive nature of this project – its ability to develop and help youngsters’ self-confidence and feel at ease with learning maths – must be implemented in schools throughout the UK. N K Kreations aim is to have the Tunes Times Tables as part of the math school curriculum for all young people aged 5 – 14, as well as providing exercise books, CDs and DVDs for home schooling, a musical tour and apparel.
