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.
Use the arrow keys to guide your bricks and destroy the wall.
A great game for practising a wide range of mathematical skills. Levels are based on objectives from the new maths curriculum from Year 1 to Year 6. Topics include: multiplication, addition, reading numbers, subtraction, fractions of numbers, Roman numerals, division, converting fractions to decimals and percentages and simplifying fractions.
You can choose to play a single level, a selection of levels, or choose all the objectives from a year group (within the same topic). There is a full list of levels below.
This game is available on both Google Play and the App Store. A free version of the app is available with just the multiplication levels.

Find the missing number to balance the calculations. An excellent tool for reinforcing an understanding of the role of the equals sign. Choose one objective, or many. You can choose all the objectives for a single year group (or multiple year groups). You can also choose to balance between different types of calculations (eg subtraction and division)
Match the pairs of cards with the same value. A great game to play as a mental starter. Over 50 levels to play including; addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, matching fractions and decimals and converting between measurements.
An incredibly versatile teaching tool. You can change the start number and change the step size, then try and find the hidden number. Choose from several difficulty levels. Ask the children to discuss the different methods they could use to find the missing number.
Can be used to explore sequences (including negative numbers and decimals), multiplication tables, as well as reasoning about numbers.
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.
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.
