Multiplication Apps for Kids

Try our multiplication apps today to help kids learn the multiplication facts, practice the times tables and experience the magic of interactive learning at home or school.

Not long ago, teaching multiplication largely meant helping children learn their times tables. That was certainly true when we were children in elementary school. Until recently, learning multiplication was ALL about memorization.

Now, the focus is on helping kids visualize the numbers involved and see the bigger picture of multiplication--like understanding why it's more useful than counting, what the different real world applications are, etc. That's generally the more difficult aspect of teaching multiplication. Luckily that's where fun and clever children's books excel!

These multiplication apps will add a blast of fun to your lessons, or if you are a parent, these apps can help supplement the math that your child is learning in school. Multiplication has never been so fun!
