I love finding apps that are fun, easy to use and get right to the math. Bonus points where they are FREE!
Here is an app I have been using lately with kids in grades 1-5. It can be used to practice addition or multiplication. There are several levels for each so it is useful with a range of learners.
|The addition option starts off at the fact level.|
|Can you find two numbers that add up to 6? A student would just need to touch the numbers to feed them to the monster and see their number sentence.|
|I like that each level ends with a summary page. This means I can have kids show me how they did as they finish. Older students can take a screen shot to show me later if I am busy with something else.|
|Addition level 2 gives kids a chance to extend their fact knowledge into multiples of 10|
|Depending on which numbers you choose, you can occasionally be unable to make a target sum.|
|Addition level 3 mixes up several types of target numbers. There are 7 total levels for addition|
|Level 1 in multiplication has you find the factors that will make a number. Right now this student is looking for 2 factors that make 30.|
|Level 2 in multiplication extends fact knowledge to powers of ten|
|Level 3 of multiplication mixes and matches problems from levels 1 and 2|
