Multiplication Explained - Master the Times Tables with Understanding

By Institute for Knowledge Design

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


What is there to know about single-digit multiplication? A lot more than you might think!

If you’re looking for an app that will help someone learn the times tables through 10x10, look no further! Multiplication Explained is much more than a typical flashcard app. It is a complete mini-curriculum designed to promote both conceptual understanding and fact fluency at the same time.

+ Interactive mini-lessons teach and check understanding of core concepts
+ Practice activities focus on learning one number at a time
+ Challenge mode tests mastery of all facts through 10x10
+ Visual hints reinforce understanding and fluency
+ Intelligent recommendations suggest what to study next based on performance
+ Clean, intuitive design
+ Low noise (so as not to aggravate parents and teachers!)
+ Efficient - focuses on learning with minimal distractions
+ Easy to use with any number of students - perfect for home or classroom
+ TEACHERS: Designed to work in all the ways you do - in a one-iPad classroom; as an activity center; or with BYOD, cart, or 1:1 scenarios

After working through the interactive mini-lessons, users should be able to:
+ Explain what it means to ‘multiply’ two numbers
+ Demonstrate *how* to multiply two numbers, with examples
+ Define the terms “multiplicand” and “multiplier”
+ Define the commutative property of multiplication and explain why it holds

After successfully completing the challenge mode, users should be able to:
+ Quickly recall from memory the product of any two numbers from 1x1 to 10x10

Customer Reviews


This is an instructional app, what I want in my classroom. It's not drill and practice. The best review comes from a student who went up to his father immediately after school and asked his dad to buy the app; the father made a bee line to me and asked for the name. If you want your child/student to develop deep understanding, rather than memorize a strategy, this is the type of software to buy and demand.


Great App for kids who are learning multiplication. This App is a winner!!

The best way to really understanding...

multiplication. My son is having fun with the challenges - and really getting fast at his time tables! I can see this will make future math much easier for him.
