The opening screen guides to many options for a child to show his or her understanding of Multiplication and Division concepts See the image below to see the icons for the six different options. The first is with dots in rows and column. Kids are to use their finger to go over dots which in turn are highlighted. Each row and column represent the number of dots in the multiplication sentence. The second icon will allow students to touch the screen with their fingertips. Each fingertip touch will cause a ball to show up. The third, the student must drag the balls into their proper boxes. The fourth is the use of drawing the number with your finger. The fifth is a fun game played in partners to draw the answer to the question first. And the last is dragging to highlight dots to represent a multiplication sentence. All of the “games” will allow parents and teachers to help children show their understanding of Multiplication and Division in different ways.
