Math Online Resources
As we continue on with multiplication facts I have researched some effective and fun online games for students to play at home to help reinforce their multiplication facts. I have also listed IPad and IPod applications that can be downloaded for free or a small amount of money, to practice with. I am not sure about Kindle’s support of these applications. If anyone does have one and be willing to share any application information, I would greatly appreciate it.
If you have come across applications and games that you have been using, please share that with me so that I can post it online for the rest of the students to use as well. These will be available online so that you can click on the link and go right to the webpage. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call.
Thank you for your continued support.
