Multiplication Tables HD - A Montessori Approach to Math by Rantek Inc.

From iTunes:
"Multiplication Tables help children with the memorization of the essential quantities of multiplication! Children can practice individual multiplication sets, such as 5x1, 5x2, 5x3, etc. The child can fill out the cards in any order they choose.

In a subtle way, the app keeps track of the child's progress, so parents and teachers can review their activity. Children can cycle through as many table cards as they choose in a random fashion.

This activity is a time-tested method of reinforcing the basic multiplication quantities and is used in Montessori classrooms around the world! This app was co-developed and approved my an AMI certified Montessori teacher with over 40 years experience in the field!"

Multiplication Charts HD - A Montessori Approach to Math by Rantek Inc.

From iTunes:
"The Montessori Multiplication Charts help children with the memorization of the essential products of multiplication! In the first set of activities, children can practice individual multiplication sets, such as 4x2, 4x9, 4x5, etc, as well as, the complete chart in one activity. In these activities the solutions to the equations can be seen on the board, helping the child know which answer to search for among the scrambled numbers on the right side of the screen.

In the advanced activity children can practice individual multiplication charts or the entire chart at once by finding the solutions without seeing the numbers on the board, thus, testing their memory. This activity is a time-tested method of reinforcing the basic multiplication products and is used in Montessori classrooms around the world! This app was co-developed and approved my an AMI certified Montessori teacher with over 40 years experience in the field!"

Cas is so glad she learned her times tables as a kid, because it really helps when buying hotdogs for dinner. If buns come in packs of 6 and sausages come in packs of 8, how many packs of each are needed for the sausages and buns to all match up?
