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.

ITP Grouping 
View full screen in your browser. This ITP allows you to display up to 30 counters or shapes on the screen. You then select a number to be the divisor in a division calculation. A number line displays the number to be divided. As individual counters or shapes are clicked and dragged to form a group the size of the divisor, they change colour. Once a group equal to the divisor is selected, it ‘jumps’ to the number line. In this example 22 counters were chosen and the divisor set to 5.

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. This resource is freely available to download from the archived Primary Framework site. 

ITP Multiplication Tables 
View full screen in your browser. Complete the multiplication tables. This resource is freely available to download from the archived Primary Framework site. 

ITP Number Dial 
View full screen in your browser. This ITP generates a number dial. The empty boxes around the outside of the dial contain multiples, the number in the centre multiplied by the corresponding multipliers around the inside edge of the dial. To reveal and hide the number at the centre, click on it or the box with the two pointers. To reveal and hide each multiple, click on the box. To reveal and hide all multiples, click on the box with ?. To reveal and hide all multipliers, click on the box with the dial. You can change the centre number to a single digit in the range 2 to 9, a multiple of 10 from 10 to 90, and to a decimal 0.1to 0.9. The single dice button generates a random centre number; all numbers bar the multipliers are hidden. The double dice button also reorders the multipliers around the inside edge of the dial and all the numbers are hidden. The ITP can be used to practise multiplying by one and twodigit numbers and decimals. Hiding different sets of numbers on the dial promotes reasoning and explanation. This resource is freely available to download from the archived Primary Framework site. 

ITP Remainders 
View full screen in your browser. This ITP sets up an empty grid into which you can place counters. Counters can be added singly, working from the first empty top lefthand corner cell, or in bulk clicking on a cell in the final row. As each column is completed it is numbered. The division calculation representing the number of highlighted counters divided by the number of rows can be revealed and hidden using the equals sign button. The answer appears when the equals sign in the calculation is clicked. Any remainder can also be shown as a fraction. In the example, below, there are 17 counters in a grid with 5 rows. Three columns are completed and there are 2 counters in the incomplete column. The displayed result will be: This resource is freely available to download from the archived Primary Framework site. 

ITP Function Machine 
View full screen in your browser. One or twostep function machine. Choose an input and explore how it is transformed by one or two number functions. This resource is freely available to download from the archived Primary Framework site. 

ITP Number Grid 
View full screen in your browser. This ITP generates a 100 square. Choose a colour or the grey mask. You can then click on individual cells to hide or highlight them in different colours, and by clicking on the box at the lefthand foot of the grid and using the pointers you can hide or highlight rows and columns. The prime numbers and multiples can also be highlighted. This resource is freely available to download from the archived Primary Framework site. 

ITP Multiplication Facts 
View full screen in your browser. This ITP allows you to represent multiplication as repeated addition using a grid of blocks or counters.It can be used to develop children’s understanding of multiplication and to develop links between the different representations and notation. The dynamic images should help children to understand why 5 x 9 means that the 5 is multiplied by the 9, and to recognise that multiplication is a commutative operation. This resource is freely available to download from the archived Primary Framework site. 

ITP Multiplication Board 
View full screen in your browser. Multiplication board ITP allows the child or teacher to represent the product of two numbers as an array, displaying the product and factors. This resource is freely available to download from the archived Primary Framework site. 

ITP Division Grid 
View full screen in your browser. This ITP allows you to model long division in a grid of thousands, hundreds, tens and units or hundreds, tens and units. You create a dividend and divisor by clicking on the hidden pointers above and below the digits in the calculation at the bottom of the screen.
