I like that our students can use this interactive practice to build their multiplication, division, and factoring fluency. It is easy to use. And even better it works within our myopenmath.com courses. We can track the time they spend practicing their arithmetic.

Quality of Technological Interactivity: Superior (3)

Students can choose from 3 different mathematic operations/skills, 3 different levels, and whether to be timed or not. Students stay engaged to beat the clock and hear the sound effects of the game.

How nice to have an interactive multiplication table like this where one could drill multiplication/division fact families. I like level 2 where the table only goes up through 9. That's all you really need to know. This tool will be helpful to many where I teach.

Quality of Assessments: Not Applicable (N/A)

The arithmetic workout can be timed and therefore used as an assessment tool itself.

This resource does not provide an introduction to concepts and skills, but is, in itself, an excellent way to practice skills. There are three different practice options from which users (students) can choose.

Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Limited (1)

My GED Preparation students loved this! Most used level 3 division and factoring, but everyone could participate by adjusting the level or using the multiplication section, which they find easier. Students were motivated to make the "cash register sound" as fast as possible and I had to ask them to turn their speakers down!

I linked the activity to our class' website so students can practice at home.
