While flashcards have some utility in helping people memorize, they are best used after
we have mastered a topic and need to build fluency – they are not magic and won’t
support the development of understanding on their own. MathTappers: Multiples is a
simple game designed first to help learners to make sense of multiplication and division
with whole numbers, and then to support them in developing fluency while maintaining
The designers of the MathTappers apps are math educators and researchers seeking to
create simple games that will help learners to make sense of mathematics one concept at
a time. We have designed MathTappers apps to support students in learning mathematics
by providing relevant visual models, focused content and helpful suggestions for parents
Our motto is: Play, Explore, Understand!
Current MathTappers Apps include:
MathTappers: Clock Master – learn to tell time
MathTappers: Estimate Fractions – make sense of fraction sums and differences
MathTappers: Find Sums – learn basic facts for addition and subtraction

My daughter mastered her multiplication tables with this. We had a 8-10 minute drive to school, I let her "play" this during the drive. In the beginning, I would race with her to see who could answer 1st. She's very competitive and was soon racing her own time. I shared this with her teacher to help others in her class.
Great math skills practice.
Looks similar to some of the Everyday Math concepts (Chicago Univ Math) some grade schools are teaching. Very unique concept in presenting math skills in multiple ways to help kids learn. Flexible options help pinpoint practice areas needed. Always helpful to view math problems outside the box. Thanks for one of the best math apps I've found.
