Table Numbers  The player chooses a factor between 2 and 9. He or she is then presented with 3 different numbers, and has to choose the one that is a multiple of the chosen factor. Good visuals; good practice.

Two Minute Warning   The player has 2 minutes to answer as many multiplication problems as he or she can. At the end of the game, the computer will show how many correct and incorrect answers the player got.

Pumpkin Multiples   The player races to collect multiples of a number. Before your child starts playing, talk about how you can tell if a number is a multiple of the number he or she selected. At the end of the game, the computer will show the multiples: talk with your child about any patterns he or she sees in those numbers. What do the multiples have in common?

Basic Division
