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

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.
