Top 5 Multiplication Apps {Tech Thursday}

Technology Thursday is a weekly linky dedicated to all things technology related. Check out our Tech Thursday page for details on how to link up! Today I am going to share my 5 go-to apps for practicing multiplication facts.

Monster Math
My first app is Monster Math. The whole game is built around a story of a monster trying to get his friend back. Students are walked through various stages to find the monster's friend. Teachers can edit the number ranges, operation and so much more! 

Times Tables Quiz
Up next is Times Tables Quiz. This is your basic multiplication drill app. I love that the numbers are easy to see, the score changes in the upper right corner (the more quickly they go the higher their points) and the app itself is easy for students to maneuver.

Times Tables Game
My next go-to app is Times Tables Game. This app has a fun"ninja" style and my students love it! Teachers have the ability to set the range of numbers for the multiplication problems. There is also a timer, so if students are taking too long- it times them out and their turn is over.

Math Monsters Bingo
The next app is definitely a student FAVORITE. it is called Math Monsters Bingo. Students are given a multiplication problem at the top of their screen and they click the product at the bottom. A little monster marker shows up! Their goal is to get 5 in a row. For each product, there are numerous places a student could pick so they need to not only know the product, but be strategic in choosing one that will help them get to 5 in a row. 

Multiplication Flash Cards Match
The last app is called Multiplication Flash Cards Match. Students play a memory style match game with the flashcards! One flashcard will show the number sentence and the other shows the product. The levels keep changing as students progress through the game. As they make a match the flashcards "explode" into little bits of confetti! So much fun!! 

I hope that these five apps will be helpful in your classroom! I know that my students always need a bit of practice with their math facts. Using new apps helps to keep their interest up and each app offers a different challenge! Do you have any go-to math apps for multiplication?
