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 linked games and helpful suggestions for parents and educators.
Please check out all of our MathTappers apps (links found at MathTappers.com):
MathTappers: MultiMatch--a matching app that challenges learners to match sets of cards placed on the table. This is our newest MathTappers app. Although it comes with a deck and you can download others from our website, it was really designed to encourage teachers and students make and share their own matching game decks to capture their understanding and challenge others.

Many options for practice
There are many choices for which fact families to practice and how many questions per round. You must push "?" Button to get to the options. A directions page may be helpful for those not used to navigating around apps.
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.
One of you was saying that there are only 5 equations you can chose however many you want like 5 10 or 15 I have improved in math and I love it
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
