How I Use It
This product is useful for rote memorization of times-tables. It's an interactive way for students to practice alone. I can envision having a few devices running the app and having students race. For example, how many questions can this group answer in 1 minute. Then you could extend the activity to chart the progress. This would also be a great app to use as part of math stations.
My Take
This app was installed on an Ipad and tested by 5th grade and 3rd grade students. Overall, students enjoyed the colorful interface and the positive feedback when questions are answered correctly. Students are prompted to answer simple multiplication problems within a time limit. My 5th grader felt it was below grade level and my 3rd grader felt it was right on grade level.
