Math & Draw: Times Table

Age Level: Ages 5-8
By Developer: Seng Hoong Lim


This is an inexpensive application that definitely serves a specific purpose. For decades on end teachers and parents have collectively known that the best way to teach students multiplication is by using multiplication tables. These tables are then broken down into flash card form and students are gotten to memorize, at an instant, the answer to basic multiplication problems. This application takes this simple, yet effective, learning tool and places it into a compact application.

The style of the application mimics a chalk board one might see in a class room setting. You can practice all the various multiplication tables from 1 to 12, or combine them and practice them all. The problem shows up on the screen and a simple swipe of the finger reveals the answer below. This is intended for practice with the child, not something you give to the student and leave them alone with. There is also an option, probably best suited for the iPad, to draw on a blank chalkboard, thus customizing the learning experience a bit more.

A slightly new twist to an old teaching technique, but I can tell you from personal experience, there is no better way to teach multiplication tables.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
