Bubble Pop - Multiplication Bubble Pop - Multiplication

A fun way to help children learn their multiplication tables. Choose which times tables to practise and then try and pop all the bubbles before your time is up. Try and make the target number (at the top) by shooting a multiplication bubble. So if your target is 10, and you have the x2 bubble, you will need to hit 5, as 5 x 2 = 10.

The free demo version has 10 missions to complete; the full version (for registered users) has 70 missions. The game is ideal for playing on a tablet or phone. Encourage your class to play at home and then watch their confidence and fluency grow.
