Farm Factor introduces the tricky topics of multiplication and division. Using concrete objects and models (veggies, boxes, and arrays), learners don't just memorize facts; they understand the underlying ideas and then move on to building fluency. It is ideal for kids learning these concepts for the first time or those who are struggling. The interactions target problem-solving and mathematical reasoning.
MULTIPLICATION SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE
* Understand multiplication as a repeated addition problem
* Understand and use the symbol for multiplication
* Find unknown numbers in multiplication problems
* Create multiplication models involving equal group scenarios
* Use arrays to solve and represent multiplication sentences
DIVISION SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE
* Understand, represent and solve division problems involving fair share and repeated subtraction scenarios
* Understand and use the symbol for division
* Find an unknown number of groups (missing divisor)
* Find an unknown group size (missing quotient)
* Understand division as the inverse of multiplication
COMMON CORE STANDARDS
Farm Factor covers the following learning standards:
3.OA.A.1 Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
3.OA.A.2 Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
3.OA.3 Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
3.OA.4 Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = _ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?

Minor bug fixes
Good game, not enough levels for the price!
My son struggles with math and this game worked well for him in visualizing the problems. He did so well, in fact, that he blew through every single level in both multiplication and division in one 30 minute sitting. I couldn't believe there weren't any more levels! It seemed like it was just getting started in helping learn these topics and then SPLAT...no more game. :(
Please make more levels in an update. It's a great game idea but should not have cost so much when it actually contained so little.
Love this, but wish there was more to it!
My daughter completed the entire game in an hour. I was surprised! Even free games have 600 levels. This was well put together and fun although the movies made no sense, but she enjoyed it. She started the game not knowing how to multiply or divide--but quickly "got it" dividing and multiplying with the veggies and baskets. The methodology was perfect.
Please make this game longer--especially for a $2.99 app.
Way too short!!
My son is about to enter 3rd grade next month. He loved this game, and so did I, except for the fact that it was way too short!!! $2.99 for a handful of multiplication and division problems? Really? I am so disappointed, because I would buy the other apps from this developer in a heartbeat, but not if they can be completed in 20 minutes like this game can.
