|Linking Multiplication and Division||
Can be used to demonstrate the commutative law of multiplaction (e.g. 3 x 2 = 2 x 3), and the link between multiplication and division.

|ITP Multiplication Array||
October 2012 - I have added a new game which represents multiplication on a number line and using a dotty array. It is ideal as an introduction to the grid method, as it provides a concrete image of how and why we partition numbers to multiply. Click here to play.

|Multiplication and Division: Inverse Operations||
Use the inverse operation to solve multiplication and division questions with a calculator.
|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.
