Tom's Educational Design
Tom's Times Tables is based on an arithmetic board created by Thomas Birch ~ 1950. Tom was head of the Maths & Science Department at Padgate Teacher Training College in England. A light bulb in the center of the board lit up when the student touched wires to the numerator and correct answer. Cards for each times table were placed over the wired pegs. Cards were also available for addition and subtraction.
