Put simply it is a tool you can use as a part of your maths program to help motivate and inspire learning of basic facts. The program covers multiplication, division, subtraction and addition. An excel document, which generates 151 random questions every time it is opened, is used to test how many correct basic facts students can produce in three minutes. The score the student achieves is compared to the Ninja ranking poster and the student receives the corresponding ninja card. Sounds simple, and it is. At all the trial schools the students have displayed remarkable motivation to learn their basic facts and have unsurprisingly displayed remarkable improvement.
